Extended Blues

Minimalism as Less Elements

Sometimes the blues or bad mood gets over extended, which is depicted by the long shadow. Note, that the shadow is straight here signifying our innate nature to hide and only show our good side to others. In my earlier photos I have used long diagonal shadows.

The Photo falls under the Minimalism as Less Elements category. To compose, I moved as close as possible to the subject and then further zoomed in using my 55-250mm lens. Editing was a challenge, as to display the same blue as what the eyes see, is very difficult in such photos. I had to increase the vibrancy, contrast, brightness and highlights.  Editing single color photos looks very easy but it  is much more difficult than editing the multicolored ones.
