Challenge: Out of Balance (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-550D Rebel T2i
Lens: Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0L IS USM
Location: Front garden
Date: Jan 5, 2011
Aperture: f/4
ISO: 1000
Shutter: 1/320
Galleries: Floral
Date Uploaded: Jan 5, 2011

Unbalanced but is it effective? Predicted score: around 5.0

My current thinking:
unbalanced - takes only half of frame
effective - complementary colors

What do you think? This has been a very confusing challenge. I found it very difficult to be deliberately unbalanced!

Apparently wrong again! This time the other way - higher than predicted, close to 6. And one comment spot on my thinking - thanks, Jutilda!

Hi, Caree,
I posted the flower in the original colors:

On my monitor the tips are magenta on the original, but not on the PP'd one (the entry).
