Today's shot could be another example of me as a photographer having noticed some special elements in a scene without consciously knowing it on the spot. By now, I may have myself ridiculed by some of you about what I mean by sight-worthiness. Well, the girl in hot pants was what I thought aroused my interest then. But on the computer, as you can see in the shot, it became obvious that what attracted me was actually the harmony of complimentary yellow and blue throughout the scene. Now I know why the girl appealed to me when she walked past me.
My radar promptly going up for the colour matters is probably a result of training. Since five years ago, I have been learning colour pencils drawing with a famed designer-painter widely known in the field in Hong Kong and China. My sense for colours has been heightened on the strength of improved skills in using colours in doing the weekly creative drawing assignments. No, I haven't learned any proper theories about colours. Fact is, as the master taught me, one doesn't have to learn to use colours to use them. We are born with a good sense in judging and using colours. It is just that only a few of us have ever tried to bring the endowment into play.
