    This weeks assignment is a color theme: 'orange'. :) Have fun with it!

    Remember to read the RULES before you post!!! Photos posted in the assignments threads are to be NEW PHOTOS taken for the assignment ONLY!

    If you have a photo that fits the theme, but was taken before this assignment was posted, you may create an "Orange" thread in the regular themes section, as none yet exist. :)

    It's funny to me how right when I opened this up and saw that this theme was "orange" I was taking a bite of my manderin oranges in orange gel. I put down my spoon and snack, wallked out to my car, got my camera, waled back to my snack and here it sits. Ironic...

    Different crop of the previous pic (blurred ... my sister's Tamron zoom IS indeed defective, I'm afraid -- or my eyes are bad, or I am bad because I am too shaky, whatever... take these as first attempts... please!)

    I like these assignment. Lovely play with the given theme!
    I will try to find more "orange" in the course of the week.

    Now this is what I call ORANGE. I actually...don't like it at all. It's so...orange! :lmao:
    What I was trying for here was that see-through, "Crystal Light" look, where the ice cubes are all shiny and crystal-clear and the drink is completely translucent and the glass has all these fresh-looking dew drops.

    Where I went wrong....I used tangerine pop. It's so MURKY!! Hahaha! Also, I believe product photographers use fake ice cubes. I've even seen fake ice cubes for sale at photo shops. But here is the outcome. :)

    Here's another. It's the base of the glass that the pop was in. :)

    I always try to take many different photos for the assignments, so I went out to find more orange and remembered the flexible pipes that I had seen on that yard, so here is some more orange from there:
