    I tried this shot for demonstrating Analogous colors Blue and green. for lesson 5
    I played with the tint and shade also for a few photos.

    I also was trying to play with the Negative space from Lesson 6. I learned negative space can also be textured surface with various degrees of details so i thought the water reflection was an interesting detail to try.

    The goal of this assignment is to limit the number of colors which make it into your photograph in order to simplify your photograph. And you have done just that with both of your images.

    Now both of your submitted images are quite easy because they are not moving and static simple photos. I’m happy with what you have done here but I want you to practice this more broadly with your photos. It’s one thing to just shoot something for the sole purpose of selecting for color. The next level for you should be picking out color and choosing colors so that they work with your photographs overall. The simplest way to do this is to put color right up there with composition, exposure, etc when you are shooting.

    Ask yourself about color in the photograph. Does it work? What kind of color is it? Do the colors work? etc etc

    Nice job here.
