A place to think about composition in photography

Blue Yellow

Simplicity again in this one.

Blue and Yellow

Blue and Yellow

The colour contrast and repetition of the blue tubes is rather appealing.

The Yellow is a warm advancing colour and the blue a cooler receding colour.

The rhythm works creating calm.  I included the yellow in the composition to add interest because there is a fine line between calm and boredom.

It has an abstract quality that keeps you thinking, what is it?

    I think it also captures a fading light which is very autumnal. The summer blues and yellows are a reference to things that have been and the shadows and light indicate what is to come. Love it.

    • Hi Norman, You have a clarity of insight I admire greatly, It shines through your work.

      (That’s probably why you are emerging as one of the leading artists in the UK)

      I hadn’t thought about the shadows as things that have been and the light as things to come.

      That’s something I’ll consciously look to incorporate in the future, thank you.
