6 - Triadic


As always, new photos only for the challenge please. Get out there and shoot!

Color Theory for Photographers: An Introduction
My opinion would be no since you’ve got yellow and orange. But it’s definitely debatable.

I always think of it as a black and white image that normally includes shades of gray, black and white. So I'm submitting this. But, some definitions of the word include shades of any single color.

What started as a cloudless blue sky day ended as a cloudy overcast. Taken on the long way home. I turned left and took the road less traveled.

I don't even make the rookie level of color theory and I don't really see browns/tans in the color wheel. I found this old wrench just a little while ago looking for frost damage in a beet field. Is it monochromatic or analogous or just boring?
