I see a "it's green", "it's blue" discussion starting up. Keep the popcorn ready! :)

Oh! Btw, definitely green. ;)

If you put a color dropper on it the green and blue channel values are almost identical over large sections, that makes it cyan.

Put it in Lightroom and move the Aqua (cyan) hue slider and the barn goes from deep blue to deep green.

So, what you're saying is that it is half green and half blue?

Not exactly pixel peeper droplets-on-feathers stuff - I've been playing with the VSCO presets which are quite subtle and the grain adds some nice texture if used sparingly.



This is in Stratford, London by the Olympic park - its a ghost-town now, apart from a horrible shopping centre. (no presets used here, just levels)

Yep, almost exactly midway. But only in the mixing sense, not that half of it is green and half of it is blue, none of it is either (practically), it is all cyan/aqua. It really is interesting playing with the three Hue/Saturation/Luminance sliders for Aqua alone, it makes a dramatic difference to the feel of the image.

Colour is a a very important compositional element, the fact that the key element in the smooth image is a strong secondary colour very much adds to the impact of the picture, our brain knows it is a key colour and is "important" but we are not sure why so we keep looking at it all the while on another level our brain is trying to figure out if it is blue or green.

Thanks for the explanation. My wife is always correcting my off sense of color (colour :D)

LOL...I think the excessive use of "u's" is elegant and shows a touch of class ;D

Very nice. I see you took the diplomatic approach (her shirt is both green and blue) ;D

LOL!  You are absolutely right, although it wasn't intentional  :o

Great colors!  I wouldn't go within a half mile of one of those events.  I'm afraid what that would do to my bodies (Canon 6D and my lungs).  Really are fantastic photos!

Dustin, it's an interesting image...but I can't overlook the fact that you abandoned a child out on the woods...all for the sake of art !!  I hope you can live with yourself... :P
