    I wanted to implement two styles of color schemes.

    One being in color with analogue and complementary colors, and also monochrome for a more simplified look.

    I usually do a color, and a black & white on the same image depending on how the image is for the best of both worlds in terms of the color scheme.

    Now I like what you’ve done here. You’ve simplified your photo and the color so much that there isn’t much there which is great.

    One improvement an an almost abstract piece like this is to ensure you have some symmetry of lines. In other words be very careful to make your lines match up well.

    This can be a challenge because most lenses incur some form of distortion. You can remove some of that in post processing.

    You can learn from architectural photographers and their use of tilt shift lenses to make sure they get nice straight lines.

    I think you’ve clearly shown you understood the assignment so there isn’t much for me to add here other than to remind you to always thing about color in your photography going forward.

    Nice job!

    Sometimes you gotta to simplify things to get that good shot 😀

    I admit that it was pretty tricky positioning my camera to make the shot as even as possible. I remember having the same issue when I took a particular shot downtown.

    But once I add a tilt shft lens that shouldn’t be much of a problem.

    Indeed I always think about what colors to add into my photographs to really make them stand out, but most of all, make a statement.

    Looking for to starting lesson 6! 🙂

    Thanks!
