Assignment 22: Color Composition

This is my contribution to Scott’s Assignment 22: Color Composition. The assignment is to make new photos to share showing how color is used for composition.  I didn’t have to go very far looking for colors, the banana tree was from my garden. I chose the autumn leaves as my background, shot at f/4 to achieve a nice bokeh effect.  I then cropped the image slightly using the rule of thirds. I chose the green and red orange colors combination to show how the season has changed, from green in Spring to red orange in Autumn. This is the last assignment for the year and it is due on Wednesday, November 21, 2012, I hope you will participate and share your photos.

    I would love to get some pointers if you don’t mind.

  2. Very nice with the red blurred background, and a good choice, red/green colors are so good together. So you have a banana plant just outside? How exotic!

    • Thanks giiid, it’s nice to see the banana tree producing fruits this year. I’m glad there’s still some autumn colors in my area for the assignment. 🙂

    • Thanks Karma, the beauty of photography is to be able to capture the images, the colors has changed tremendously now and I’m afraid Winter is here to stay.

  3. […] hailing from Southeast Asia and now living in the Southeastern United States, constructed a photo contrasting the change of seasons from summer to fall in a very creative and colorful way. While she used a compositional rule, she used the colors first […]
