    I did an article on complimentary colour and hope that it is up to the expected standard

    I am thinking of exploring the various colour comparison. Maybe a room to write about cyan yellow or red green combination? Red Vs Green

    May I critique? :

    Something that is missing is that a picture says a thousand words. You mention the use of a colour wheel, and rightfully so since no colour discussion should be without.

    However by introducing the concepts of "colour wheel", and "adding colour" without an example even in text or far better yet a picture, then telling readers to use this in their photos you are quickly alienating the reader who will hopefully google "colour wheel" and then hopefully not find another site talking about colour theory and close yours.

    You want your reader to focus on your article not to go off searching elsewhere for answers :)
