A day in Cambridge

By Mavis
A day out rather misley But I thought the red Umbrellas brightened the day . I changed the back pack to red as it was purple in PS.Straightened it up . Hope you like it .xx

We had just been into Nat West Bank & they were giving away these red Umbrellas so we took one each. I do love red too xx
I have now put up another one without the red border for Alister& any more who do not like my red border ?

When the world turns to drab grey, a red umbrella is a great subject!

A good composition, Mavis, love the red brollies Smile. How about changing the colour of the cyclist's anorak to red, too?Wink Carol

Good idea to make the back pack red and together with the red umbrellas makes a good focal point.

A day out in Cambridge is good - but sometimes the monochrome of the buildings needs a little something to give it a boost.

Here the use of a small amount of colour adds that bit special.

Love it.

When I first looked at this, I thought that had the umbrellas had not been red, I'd have re-coloured them. But looking further I see you had the same idea with the backpack! If as you say, it was mauve, it would have clashed with the red brollies...Wink A great capture, Mavis, with the added bonus of the cyclists, nicely placed Smile

The red umbrellas and red backpack definitely brighten up what would have been a drab scene otherwiseSmile

Nice image and good editing, but I feel the frame used isn't helping the image. I think it takes away from the impact of the red-umbrellas, at least in my eyes it's constantly "telling me" to look at it, rather than at the picture. I think a less powerful frame or possibly no frame at all would have actually been a better option here.

As for the rest, I agree with the above posters. I like this.

Thank you Alistair I have put one on without the edging & quickly went one to the other & all I see is the Umbrellas so I think different people see different things xx
