A rambunctious and wild photograph taken during Portland’s first Winter Light Festival.
Lucia says, “This is an excellent example of good design. The main message (OMSI) is in the foreground and is supported by clean, geometric lines and shapes of contrasting colors (bright red and deep blue). I like the artfully placed green accents. They add a little boost to grab your attention. And then there’s the lighting. This is what compelled me to make this photo and is the real star of this design. Lit from below, the background adds depth, drama, and mystery. Without this lighting, most likely, you’d be saying, ‘it’s nice, but so what’. It goes to show how everything in your design can affect the mood, idea, and even your story. When choosing images for your presentations, watch out for the small, subtle elements. They can have a big effect.”
Susan says, “The night sky provides the second brilliant primary color in this spectacular display of light. Many shades of red are reflected from the different shapes and surfaces of OMSI, the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. A very in-your-face example of the use of color, line and shape.”
