Sometimes it pays to be bold and let that color be strong and saturated. That was the goal this week with the color Instagram challenge. It’s difficult to hit that right balance but sometimes we can find color for the best shots, especially with the winter season at the moment. Light painting with a Christmas tree,  diffused light, advertisements, and dyed hair made for great out of the box choices and you all did well!

As it’s currently 17F out it’s time to photograph the cold weather, or ice cream for the Aussie’s. Cold is a temp, a feeling, so shooting it can be a bit subjective and abstract, thinking out of the box. So it’s your turn to get a bit chilly for great photos like Toby had to in Alaska.

To enter post your photos on Instagram before noon next Friday with the tags #PRTV and #PRTV_cold.

The color against the lack of color and the unique angle – looking almost straight up which makes this stand out to me.

Roy’s Winner:

Lightning is always a great subject for color. You’ve got a bright flash that lights up the clouds but the different types of lightning can give different colors to the clouds. Plus being over the city you get the contrast of the yellow city lighting from the older sodium lights. It’s a great shot with nice contrast for that pop of color.

Roy’s Honorable Mentions:

Traditional bright colors with the lighter blue sky make this colorful boat a great shot. Cropping the boat to focus on the paint works well albeit I’d like the shot framed a slight bit more to the left to follow the rule of thirds better.

The other day #tbt

A photo posted by Edgar (@insta.gram.ed) on

Sunsets make for a great subject but also a great backdrop for Edgar’s photo. The duller color of the city has been saturated a bit and with the nice warm background via the sunset it really makes the orange show through for the photo.

 #mondaymorningshare - Were you trying to impress the ladies this week like this green winged teal? Visit photorec.tv/fb to share your favorite photo from the last week and check out all the submissions! It's a great way to get your work seen! * Captured with the Sigma 150-600 C as I wrap up my comparison vs the Tamron 150-600
 Deal Alert - http://photorec.tv/80dsale This is an unofficial price drop and probably won't last long! I am working on a video right now about why the 80D #dslr is still my pick for best all around camera at this price point and still a better pick versus the new #canon #77D. The owl photo I posted a few days ago was captured with the #80D at ISO 5000
 Another from last weekend's #owlstravaganza (I am so glad that hashtag exists) I hope to head back here this weekend with my kids to see these Short-eared Owls hanging out and as I mentioned earlier it is a great testing ground for my Sigma 150-600 vs Tamron 150-600 G2 comparison I am working on. * Captured with the Canon 80D and #tamron #150600g2 ISO 5000 (it was darker than it looks)
