I've wound up with a few shots where I was pleased with unusual colors or color combinations. Wondering if that's an interesting enough category to warrant its own theme thread. Here's a recent example:



I think this is the first bird photo I've taken with nice green water. This was taken close to sunset, so we also get a bit of gold hue.

Sure, that works! Nice!

Here are a few more examples:

Here's one more example with a cool background gradient: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/612110176 (not mine, so I won't post the image itself)

Not a bird, so it's just going to be a link.  All of my other pictures of Flame Skimmers had pond-colored or vegetation-colored backgrounds, and that's what you usually see on the Web, so when this male posed (they like to do that), I made sure to get sky in the background.
