#373 - Spectrum Color Challenge - Violet
Posted By: sealonsf, 12-08-2016, 01:42 PM

LondonWombat suggested a weekly challenge to start with BLACK, then each subsequent week, move through all colors of the visual spectrum (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet) and then end with WHITE.

This week's color is VIOLET - and since last week was Indigo, this might be a tough challenge. Here's a link about the differences between the two colors:

Indigo vs Violet - Colors Comparison

I'm changing the guidelines a bit to make this easier - the color doesn't have to be dominate, but rather, some portion of the photo should have shades of Violet. Have fun!

The Challenge will close on Friday, December 16th, midnight in your time zone.

The Rules:

1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax (or Ricoh DSLR ) camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, then the winner will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

I didn't have a lot of "Violet" in my archives but maybe this one fits the criteria of the challenge.--charliezap

I can already tell that this will not be easy to judge. There are some great entries. Keep it up! Violet is the new black.
