December 21st. We made it. You didn’t really think the world would end, did you?
These berries characterize the poignancy of the season. I actually shot this photo earlier in December, but I had to think about what I wanted to do with it.
It originally had lots more color, but I really wanted the red to stand out.
The picture itself was all right, I thought. Really, I wanted to emphasize the red color, though.
Sure, it’s prominent in the original already, but I was thinking wanted the “reds” to dance around in the foreground and the background. So, I desaturated most of the colors.
In the first photo, you’ll notice yellow tones. I left the yellow as-is, too, because it works with the red to create red-orange hues. Then, I super-saturated the red in the first photo to make it pop.
Here’s the question: which do you like better? The winner will become a Zazzle product.
