@Berean: Both images are interesting in their own right, but I'm going to ask you to have another go at this one. The first shot certainly gets most of it's effect from the blue, but the contrast against the white is not giving the impact expected for this assignment. Your second entry may have made an interesting entry in the low-key assignment, but we are looking for something a bit brighter here.

Cheers... Brian

@bms44974 - Thanks for your comments. I've included another, this one a lot brighter and more vivid.

I see a double pass coming up -- the Exif is included (eureka!) and the shot is right. I will leave it to Brian or Pieter to confirm the latter.

At last, I've managed to include the exif, but only by changing to Photobucket. From now on ALL my images will have exif Thank you for all your advice.
I will leave it to Brian or Pieter to confirm the latter.

Hopefully, they'll agree with you!

@Berean: Now tha's what I'm talkin' 'bout . The glare at the upper right is a distraction, but I'd call it a pass. Cheers... Brian

Exif, what exif?

Berean - congrats on the pass (and the exif). Is this the edge of a flag?

Thank you p_man: finally sorted the exif!
Is this the edge of a flag?

Looks a little like the Union flag, doesn't it? In reality, it's a British road sign edge, polarised against the blue sky.

The glare is the only mild distraction but fully concur with the pass.
I'll try to work on some more NEW assignments over the weekend, otherwise you will run out pretty soon. Still need to develop 3 portrait and 6 advanced assignments. Hope you will not have a problem with a small break

Ok,

First attempt at primary colour. I wasn't overly happy with the picture to start with due to the shadow line that runs at an angle behind the subject and other minor areas (e.g. not sure about the spoon reflection) but I've got to stop worrying and just post more...I have altered brightness and contrast in pp to help the strawberry 'pop' a bit more.

I hadn't been thinking about this assignment as much as others (that I haven't got round to...must take some lessons out of Ians book!) so would really appreciate some CC to clarify if I am thinking in the right direction

@ Basil
Something is a bit strange with your predominant primary colour, the red. In #2 and #3 it looks a bit dirty, as if contaminated by another colour or the WB setting is "off" (possibly because of the snow and overcast conditions if you were on auto-WB).

#1 would work fine if the hydrant paint was a bit more recent -- the red is set off well by the green.

I know I am being a bit nit-picky, but all in all there is nothing really VIBRANT in the three shots, so I suspect Brian will be telling you to try again. (And a quiet reminder that there's a max of two shots per entry. )

Agree with brettania, all 3 reds are not vibrant/clear. Seems they are have some other colors mixed in and are more pinkish/pastel. The themes are nice for the assignment but the colours need to be more in our face. Hope you don't mind to try again.

I agree...there seems to be something missing. When I did a quick print, the colors popped. But viewing then again on the monitor, they are a bit pale. I guess it's time for a little troubleshooting.
