This particular orange


It was a stunning reversal.

I first shot this in black and white. But even I could tell that was wrong, so I switched cameras to get a portrait of this orange peel, bathed in misty light.

  1. I like this a lot, it’s beautifully and intensely composed.

    (You must have had your eyes peeled to see this.)

  2. The orange is cool… the yellow pipe is kind of cool too, like it really wants to hang out with the orange.

  3. Yep, it works really well, great attention to the components of this capture….


  4. Go Big Orange! (the first U.T.) glad you did in color. Awesome !


  5. I do like the orange but my eye keeps wandering to the yellow hydrant thingy on the right edge.


  6. Having looked carefully at Sam A’s website, you can really see the influence he had on this composition. Your use of balance in the colour is definitely your own and very effective!


  7. Beautiful color, mood and balance.
