I love color. (As many of you know) But, I also love contrasts. A few weeks ago, I wrote an article about turning mundane shots into amazing shots. If you read that article, you’ll remember that I suggested converting photos to black & white and then adding in a little big of color. This series of photos does just that. It’s not that I thought these photos were boring by any means. But sometimes, I want to draw attention to a particular part of the photo. And that is what I aimed to do here.

Let’s start with the following photo of the Big Mac bridge(appropriately known as the I-471 bridge). Most people identify this bridge with it’s yellow arches and hence the nickname Big Mac.
The next photo was taken at the airport viewing area for the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky Airport. I was there early one morning in hopes of capturing some take offs and landings. I didn’t see one. So, I was forced to find other things to shoot. I was intrigued by the blue tent of the fence.
This photo was taken at Eden Park in Cincinnati. I want the focus to be on the red tower in the background.
In the following two photos, I want folks to focus on the color portions of the flowers. Since their petals are all white, taking the color out of the photo, only enhances the non-petal portion of the shots.
In this photo, I like the interaction between the colors shown.
And finally, what do you think of the following photo?
