Color Splash: Water Tower

I went to New York in the Spring. I took a ton of pictures but one of my favorites was this one of the water tower in Brooklyn. It stood out pretty well in the regular photo but I figured making a color splash version just helped the color pop even more.

Color Splash Gif

I felt like I needed to do one more assignment to get the number of stars needed for the week, even though I’m not doing this for a grade. I really wanted to try the movie summarized in gif ones but the movies on my computer right now didn’t really lend themselves to that assignment.
I really liked the color splash assignment but I was itching to make a gif for the Say it Like the Peanut Butter assignment. So I combined them, and here’s the result.

It’s the scene from A New Hope where Obi-Wan is about to face Darth Vader, I haven’t seen the movie in awhile but I remember it being a pretty pivotal scene considering the outcome of the battle.

I wish Obi-Wan didn’t lean to the side, and only the lightsaber was moving but it was hard enough trying to get just the lightsaber be the only thing in color. I also wish that Obi-wan had the red light saber because I feel like that would’ve stood out more in the black and white gif, but alas he was not on the Dark Side.

There is a tutorial I was working on for this but it ended up too long so it’s going to get its own post. It should be up before the day is over.

Color Splash Take 2: FLAMINGOS

I went to the Philadelphia Zoo last year and took a picture of flamingos. Now, they weren’t as bright as I have seen them in many pictures so I decided to help them out by having them be  the only colorful thing in the picture.
Things I learned while doing this 1 Flamingos have very skinny legs. and 2 Grass is annoying.

Splash of Color

So I saw the Visual Assignment 340 and I’ve always wondered how pics like that were done and figured now was the time to find out. It’s quite simple, I don’t know why it took me so long to do. Here’s my final product.

It’s a picture I took, either in Scotland or England, of a phone booth. I don’t know if the splash of color works well for this one since it is the focus of the photo, and usually color splash seems to be something small,  but I still like the bright vibrant red.
(If you want to see a bigger version of it click the picture, it’s a huge picture.)
