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.

Toby's Honorable Mention:
https://www.instagram.com/p/BN5fVkfjjZf/The color against the lack of color and the unique angle - looking almost straight up which makes this stand out to me.
https://www.instagram.com/p/BN4r5ALjJpN/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:
https://www.instagram.com/p/BOEc2JzDdrh/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. https://www.instagram.com/p/BOC94PnjTDT/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.
