This is a glorious photo on many levels but its color palette sets it apart as a template for a presentation.
Susan says, “Before I begin to rave about the colors found in Lucia’s photo, I’d like to take a minute to admire the displaced wheel spokes that add just the tiniest touch of something-being-not-quite-right about this wheel. Did it stop you in your tracks, subconsciously or unconsciously, wondering what’s off? And then, of course, you see the problem. It made you look, as they say. But onto the colors. These glorious rose pinks. rose reds, and red browns create a seductive monochrome palette of the wheel to work from with contrasting highlights provided by the complementary pale blue green of the soft lambs ears. The more I look at this photo the more there is to like and it provides such generous help with selecting colors for your presentation. You know these colors are right.”
Lucia says, “The contrast of the unusually colored wheel against the green plants is the main attraction here. The light is flat so there are no dramatic effects. The color palette that Susan created from this photo is appealing and unique. I can imagine her resulting presentation template to be eye-catching.
A Little Bit of Imperfection to Peak Interest
As I mentioned, the colors were what attracted me to this scene in the first place. But I almost passed on making this photo because the wheel looked too perfect. Then I noticed the slightly bent spoke. This is the ‘not-being-quite-right’ touch that Susan mentioned. It’s not obvious. You probably felt it before you saw it. It’s just a little subliminal tension to keep you on your toes.
