Seeing Red
Camera: Pentax K-x Photo Location: Camas, WA 
Posted By: OrangeKx, 12-27-2011, 02:48 PM

Bad day for taking pictures in Vancouver, WA on 12-26-11, but wanted to play with my Christmas gift. Cloudy, flat light day. Drove by a school and the red pillars caught my eye. Used the K-x digital filter to remove all color but red. Learned I had some dust in the camera after getting home and looking at the pictures but have fixed that problem. May go back on a sunny day and do this shot again.

Cool effect! Would be nice if the hue of the red would be the same everywhere, also you should crop out the tree in the upper-right corner. Apart from that, I'd say this works quite well

Thanks. Fixed the tree. The camera set the red, but it would look better the same hue.
