Lens-artist’s Photo Challenge #44: Harmony

Tina is talking about harmony in a photograph, and in particular colour harmony. Well, I’m all for a burst of colour here and there, probably more vivid and shouty than complimentary , but I’ll see what I can find….

First up,though, I’m going to go single colour, which I find can be most harmonious as with the shades of brown in this image….

And now for a bit of opposition – I love the blu and red in this one:

Detail, Matera

A mix of complimentary colours  (the blues) interspersed with areas of opposing colours, but all in all I find this image quite calming:

Man in the shadows, Cienfuegos, Cuba

complimentary colours (in the foreground leaves), set against opposition (green in the background)

and here, for a variety of largely opposing colours

Wall art, Santiago de Cuba

And some lary colours

  1. Good selection, Sue. And you managed to sneak in a Cuban ‘One’ too. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Lovely and interesting collection, Sue. 😍

  3. Beautiful colorful photos Sue!

  4. Really loved all of these Sue – some of my favorites among your many terrific posts. Proving that whichever way you go with color there is lots to love!

    • Sue

      Pleased you like these, Tina! And yes, lots to love about colour, even more so if we think about how we use it….does the use of colour add to our storytelling? I know when I use B&W it does

  5. Ah, lovely, Sue – and well chosen. I love all these, but have two favorites…Cienfuegos and the barrels. I find them very soothingly beautiful.

    • Sue

      Thank you, Ann Christine – I, too find the Cienfuegos image soothing, I think because the predominant colours are complImentary…

  6. The photographs are absolutely gorgeous and the colour play perfectly captured.

  7. Oh that blue door with the red basket is divine.

  8. Gorgeous, gorgeous colours. A beautiful gallery of shots Sue.

  9. You’re becoming quite visually verbose. I love it!

  10. I absolutely love the blue door. WP somehow unfollowed you so I have re-followed.. Have a great week.

    • Sue

      That blue door is one of my all-time favourites, Marie! And thanks for re-following….WP has unfollowed me more than once, which reminds me I have some to check….

  11. Beautiful collection, Sue. That doorway in Matera was a show-stopper for me. 🙂

  12. Lovely collection, Sue. But my favorite is the door shot. Its colors really attract my eyes.

  13. Neat concept…. 🙂 If we are picking a favourite I will go with the bike and of course the barrels
