Summer of Color 5, Week 3: Purple, Purple, Yellow

Summer of Color is back.  Click on the link to the left to view entries or to participate yourself.

See my image and others on the Summer of Color 5 Flicker page:

This year, instead of giving us three specific colors, Kristin is giving us two basic colors and we are supposed to choose our own shades of those.

For Week 3, we are supposed to choose two shades of purple and one shade of yellow.  I always end up with many more shades because when I overlap colors they create more tints and shades.

If you post your images to a blog or to Flickr I can see them. (If you posted to Facebook, sorry, but I don't have a Facebook account.)

"Dissonant Doors"
This composition began as three separate photos. Two were of doors in homes. The other was
a door and a window in the stone foundation of a barn. I cropped the three individual
images and rearranged them to create my composition. I then changed my image to black &
white and increased the contrast. I added separate color layers for my three colors. Finally, I
created a bas relief layer to give it a little depth and detail, then added a grunge texture layer.
(My grunge texture was from Graphic Stock with some of my own modifications.)
