    @acparsons I love #2&3 and the way the glasses reflect the color onto their skin.

    There's a reason the hulk wears purple pants - purple and green are my favorite color duo. These are a bit noisy since I didn't edit them other than cropping on my ipad. Been trying to get a minute to photograph these since I bought them on Saturday and no time for a full edit today! Haven't been using my camera much lately - I hate the cold weather. Bring on the spring colors and flowers!

    Almost a cinematic color grading here AC, with its limited color palette. Love the contrasting complementary colors of blues and reds.

    Sharon, these are primo examples of the challenge you have posed this week.
    Green and magenta are opposing colors.
    Blue and yellow are opposing colors.
    And your images' palettes are limited to just these complementary harmonies.

    Earlier in my posts here I mentioned that my aging Ps CS4 doesn't have the more recent versions' Adobe Color Theme.
    It has a less versatile extension called Kuler.

    I've found, from a youtube tutorial, that if one wants to look at a color wheel and explore the various analogous or complementary or triad color harmonies and one doesn't mind going online, Adobe has a url for doing just that.

    Adobe Color

    I plugged color.adobe.com into my browser's address bar.
    It gives many more options than my Photoshop's Kuler.

    Or you could do like I did many years ago buy a Pocket Color Wheel. This one hasn't changed in 20 years, is easy to use, lasts forever and still only costs a few bucks. Artist's Color Wheel - BLICK art materials You can also find them at Hobby Lobby, and other art supply store, as well as many office supply store.

    Almost the first thing I saw walking out this morning. Different shades of magenta and the yellow and red just popping against the more muted tones. BTW, these were planted by someone who moved away a couple of years ago, and no one is fertilizing them or watering them.
