Pretty in pink – Weekly Challenge – The Hue of You. Day 3

DSCF8879

 

Good morning from a wet and miserable Hastings today.

Today, as you can see the colour is pink.  All these photos this week have been taken on the same day so that the lighting conditions are the same.  I looked for 5 different colours to focus on.  Easy really as there are lots of roses out for this colour.  Pink has so many variations.  Yesterday I was doing a photo book for my step daughter of her wedding.  Her favourite colour is pink.  I did all the pages and then realised that the  pinks didn’t match.  I ended up going back and replacing all the backgrounds with the same pink background.  It made things so much easier.  Her bridesmaids were dressed in a cerise pink and her flowers had cerise, white and pale pink roses which I then tried to match up with embellishments of the roses I had taken.  Anyway I hope she likes her Christmas present.

As you can see the rose on the left has a slight purple or blue tint while the rose on the right is more of an apricot tint.

These roses had a yellow centre which changes the colour of the pink a bit as well.

I like the two tone affect of these petals.  The light leading to the deeper colour on the edges.

Different shades of pale pink here as well.

No two rose has the same pink tones and hues.  It also changes with the light as well, whether in the shade or in full sun.

Here are two different size flowers to contrast against each other.

Have fun looking around for pink colours and hues.

Split toning with Sonel’s Corner – Change of season

Good evening from a very windy and gusty Hastings.

I have just spent some time playing around with these leaves that I had shot back in the autumn.

This is the first change of colour via the colour gradient.

brown leaves - split toning

Brown, but it didn’t have the texture I wanted with the leaves.

green leaves for split toning

The next adjustment with the gradient map turned it green with more texture.

blue and green leaves for split toning

I played around with the colour adjustment to see if I could increase the contrast.

Then back to the gradient map for the more contrast.

yellow, blue and green leaves for split  toning + magenta

 

For something different I added the magenta colours.

colourful centre split toning

 

Finally I used one of the filters to just give it a colourful centre, which gives the affect of an inner glow.

I should add that to start with I used the poster edge filter just to strengthen the lines.

The end result is so totally different to the beginning.  But that is all part of the fun.
