Challenge: Red IV (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7
Date: Jul 19, 2013
Aperture: 1.4
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/25
Date Uploaded: Jul 19, 2013

HArd to get more red than this scene. These are the chairs in our soon to be "defunct" auditorium at work. We thought 5500 seats would be enough, but in typical Epic style, we have outgrown it. Now we are putting the finishes on a 13000 seat auditorium. I wonder what color the seats will be in there.

This was shot with my Lumix LX7, on my way back to my office from lunch. I thought about going back to shoot the scene with the magnificent 5D mark iii, but I really like how this turned out, so no need to go waste time. :)

Once again, keen observers may recognize these chairs from my Row S entry.

I like that I have recently found new angles/techniques/views on similar subjects. To me, that says I'm expanding how my mind thinks about scenes.

Thanks for the votes and comments all! I thought I had a chance at the blue when I took this, but as 21_F.gif Neat has correctly pointed out, I'm allergic to the color blue :)

Ha, Mike! I did not know that you were an Epic-ite! We drive past Epic City several times a year; our son goes to UW Platteville. My wife is also an Epic trainer for Aurora.

Fantastic. The repeating lines and shapes and perfect symmetry with the deep red are so pleasingly formal. Congratulations on the ribbon.

Oh, good find. You know what would make this exceptional?
one draped scarf, coat, object, of another color to break, and call attention to, the delightful repetition you found here.
