Complements to the Creator

This was shot at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens in their orchid display. Teleologically speaking I just don't see any way the staggering range of impossible patterns, complexity, and beauty could have happened apart from design even for one flower, much less thousands.

Assignment

Complementary colors are two colors opposite each other on the color wheel: - Yellow and purple, - Blue and orange, - Red and green. Complementary colors are often used in design, other visual arts and also photography. They create a natural (and strong) contrast that makes both of the colors brighter and more vivid. It is not by accident that lumberjacks wear red jackets in a green forest or that many of van Gogh’s paintings are so striking. It is fun to go full saturation with complementary colors to see how the two colors pop against each other, but be careful not to create a photo that is too busy. The stronger your colors, the more minimalist your subject should be. Keep in mind that your complementary colors do not have to be highly saturated. You can also play with less vibrant colors and still have your two colors to subtly complement each other.
