    This week's challenge is to use purple as the subject or accent within your photos. Look for shades of purple in your everyday life or create purple still life scenes or use filters and other post processing adjustments to incorporate purple into your submissions.

    Some suggestions to find the color purple - flowers, sunrise and sunsets, candy, clothing, mountains, lights...

    Get creative! As always, new photos only. Get out there and shoot.

    Some instructional and inspirational links:

    I'm reading the first link of yours Sharon and chuckled as within it was a link to "getting the right colour balance in your shots."

    Wikipedia defines Purple as a range of hues occurring between red and blue. Color theory defines it as any colors on the line of purples on the CIE chromaticity diagram (or colors that can be derived from colors on the line of purples). Short definition - If it's not red or blue then it's purple. LOL

    Lovely flower shot! I was wondering if there was going to be the debate on pink - red - purple in this thread :)

    What about the lavender/purple issue? Where does lavender end, and purple begin?

    Yup wasn't going down that road, I sampled "a" (not telling which) flower in the image to get the hex code to be sure. #923981 Color Hex :allteeth:

    And so it started. LOL According to Rapid Tables, it's at the very end of purple. Just below Thistle, and Plumb. Purple color codes - RGB purple colors
