Selective Color

I enjoy processing my images with selective color. I often try to make it subtle and not so in your face. But there are times when I like to push it. It can help a boring image come alive and grab attention.

Pink always wins!

Pink and red  usually stand out on their own. I like to give them a little help sometimes. When I took the pic in Budapest, I really did not notice her. That happens a lot when I’m traveling. They tend to become happy accidents for me. The pink flower just needed something and I was in a rut, so I stepped out of my comfort zone and went wild. The  woman in red pants in Old Town Square caught my eye as soon as I saw this photo. I still don’t know which one I prefer. And red doors always make me happy!

 

Blues and greens are fun too!

The American flag should always have selective color. Always. As in the case with the Bijou reflection, the selective color is already there, it just needed a little push. A green rabbit on top of sausage vendor’s stall. I wanted the eye to go right to that rabbit and not the bright red coat below. The blue wagon grabbed my attention when I was processing the photo later.

As always, I love feedback. I would also love to see your selective photos. And remember have fun with your art!

 

 

Last of Budapest

This is the final Budapest gallery (for now). It’s time to move on to Poland, land of cheese and meat. So, watch for that soon.

In this gallery you will find street scenes and small slices of every day urban life. I love shooting cities. At a quick glance they all tend to look the same. While the buildings are old, they all have that beige concrete look. But when you start getting into it, you see there are many differences. You can feel a difference in the people. In the way they interact with one another. In the way they decorate or eat. You just have pay attention and be open to the experience.

The markets in Budapest were amazing and left me wishing I lived close to something similar. The rich history of the area is inviting and eye opening.
