At one time there was a Challenge Thread that ran for several years (some of you will remember and for some of us, that is where we met) RED is a color associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination, passion, desire and love. RED is intense, brings text and images to the foreground - an accent color used to stimulate people into making quick decisions. (Color Wheel Pro - color theory)

RED's global similarities are significant: one of the top 2 favorite colors of ALL people, appears in 77% of the world's flags.

Blogger/photographer Kent DuFault ("google" him) analyzed the photographs posted on one photo challenge site in effort to boost his images' performance. He discovered those receiving the most "points" more frequently contained some RED. RED gets noticed.

Other forum topics post links so I am trying it. I found these articles very interesting.

In this challenge do more than post RED. Think about RED and the impact it has on your image. Does it show energy, passion, intensity, a powerful message? Tell us in word and image. My first post illustrates the impact of red. In the second image, I changed the color only. What do you think? Which would you want on your wall? AND most of all - have fun turning your/our UHH world RED for 3 days.

Looks like one of those complicated geometry problems I could never solve. Beautiful almost red sky trails. Nothing but clouds here.

Yes, Rivernan. You've used red well here, RR. Red line threading through the chairs. A blah scene without the red kayak. And red window frame.

p.1. And #2 is a great example of the WOW and POW factor of red. Very intense, mysterious when juxtaposed with the stark jet black.
