Clearly I prefer monochrome images for the BMC textures and shapes. However, sometimes the colors are so intriguing, the result just has to be in color. I like this first one for the contrast between the cool blue background and the warm coppery foreground. There are some forms in the canyon that are sharp, pointed, almost knife-edge like. But there are also these smooth, curved forms that are so organic.
I'm not sure how this image came out so golden, but I love the result. It must have been a combination of the light we had and the reflecting light off the canyon floor. This one took very little post processing.
There are several things I like about this one.
1. It's a small detail. Even I, who spends too much time looking for small details, almost overlooked it.
2. The color/warmth contrast between the blue and gold.
3. The diagonal line that creates energy from a subject that is decidedly not energetic.
Back to the monochrome. The lines and shapes are what always draw my attention.
Yes, I placed (and balanced) that rock there.
And this one too
Two views of the same formation, each with slightly different perspective, and different feel.
These last two I had printed and are now hanging on my walls. The final image might be my favorite of the day. Of course that could change tomorrow - such are the tastes of an artist.
