BLUE SPIRAL by Jamie Federick

October 2019 - BLUE SPIRAL

About the Image(s)

I originally did it for our camera club competition of the Golden Spiral. It was in red. It was taken at f11, 1/5 sec, ISO 200, 55mm. I decided to change the color in Elements and give it an artistic "Poster Edge" also. I know the color is unrealistic but I just love it in blue as sort of an abstract

The poster edge effect works very well. Not seeing the original, I'm not certain if the red would provide the same variation of color but what you did get is extremely well done.   Posted: 10/04/2019 14:58:59

I will post my original before I did the poster edge and changed the color.   Posted: 10/06/2019 20:48:26

Very nice graphic. The image could also work as a back and white photograph.   Posted: 10/06/2019 20:35:56

I love it. I don't understand how you got the two colors though if it was all red before.   Posted: 10/07/2019 08:17:26

I guess when I changed the colors in Lightroom, the shadows became other tones.   Posted: 10/07/2019 11:42:20

Very artistic, Jamie. I am a big fan of images with strong graphics. Have you tried it in other color palettes? I am thinking a lot could be done with this.   Posted: 10/07/2019 09:33:29

I have tried in several colors and really liked the blue. I have it framed in red and may use in our exhibition. Do you like the blue better?   Posted: 10/07/2019 11:41:26

I don't know...I think different people prefer different color palettes. I persoanlly tend more toward bllues and greens. So it is a matter of personal taste.   Posted: 10/07/2019 12:11:41
