In July, I was thinking about complementary colors and began playing around with a picture I have of a green palm frond I photographed in Florida.
Off the top of my head, I don't recall how I turned it into this -- I would have to bring up that file and look at all the layers and see what the sequence was, and since I'm having computer problems at the moment, that's not in the cards.
Even though these are ridiculous colors for a palm frond, I really liked the vibrancy, the combo of purple and yellow, and the overall simplicity of the picture.
It looked good as a full-frame horizontal image, and when I squarified it, it looked good that way, too.
So here they are. Two formats and an example of what just playing around can do for you.
