One of the things you want to look for in a good image is how it makes you feel. The colors in an image plays just as big a role as some of the others things that can make an image good.
Kandinsky felt that colors evoked these feelings and states:
- Yellow – warm, exciting, happy
- Blue – deep, peaceful, supernatural
- Green – peace, stillness, nature
- White – harmony, silence, cleanliness
- Black – grief, dark, unknown
- Red – glowing, confidence, alive
- Orange – radiant, healthy, serious
Your image could be color dominant and evoke these feelings when viewed. It’s all about creative intent.
In a small corner of an otherwise large shopping meca, the rows of pots face each other in a stand off for attention. They proudly display their fauna under the bright greenhouse roof, gently reaching up to grab as much light as possible before the day fades away. Passersby ignor them, don’t even know they are there, as they continue to cycle fresh air into the closed up building, giving life to everyone. Breath in deeply my dears.
“Source of Heat”
f/6.3, 1/5 sec., ISO 1250, 18 mm
When it’s cold outside, snowing, the heat draws you in like a moth. Gently settling in, warming your bones, it doesn’t matter what causes the heat, just that it’s there. You can hear the crackling of the wood in the silence. Mesmerizing.
