Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

The blue and yellow contrast is my favourite, hardly ever see a bad shot when made of these two colours.

@Curly: One of my favorite combos too! I am just learning how tricky color can be!

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

A very bright and uplifting shot Tracy! ;-)

@MARIANA: Thanks Mariana! I am finding that choosing to photograph color on purpose is quite challenging, but still really fun!

Don Smith from California, United States

@Don Smith: I know you know this place...Right in the heart of Capitola...The Venetian Courts are proving to be great fun for this kind of thing! (Then I can go to Mr. Toots for coffee when I'm cold and wet!)

Andy Wong from Hong Kong, China

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

The lengths some folks will go to to get on the color wheel ! Brilliant find.

@Ronnie 2¢: I now it! I'll bet that is what they were thinking when they painted it! :) There was a plant urn mounted between two of the apartments- half yellow, half purple....I keep meaning to get back there and photograph it!

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

I would have to say you are a Master photographer, Tracy. I'm loving this color series.

@B. Thomas: I am always working to get better...but don't have it mastered just yet! LOL! Thanks for the lovely confidence boost- Really makes my day!
