#429 - Complementary Colors
Posted By: sealonsf, 08-04-2018, 03:54 PM

Weekly Challenge #429

The theme this week is "Complementary Colors." Complementary colors are directly opposite each other in the color spectrum, such as red and green, yellow and violet, red and blue, magenta and green or blue and orange. (You get the idea - I won't be too strict on whether the colors are truly complimentary.)

Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week or, in case the winner is unable to run the next chalenge, the second place holder.

This challenge will run until next Saturday (August 11) at midnight PST.

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 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, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

A subject presented itself just a few minutes ago outside the house, Unfortunately I couldm't get once without the white siding in the background, and the poor swallowtail has a torn wing, getting around fine though
