Default Blue - The blue rooom

staying blue but going a little outside the box I decided to colorize this photo of a slot canyon to turn it from a sandstone walled red/orange room to a blue ice walled room. I imagine such a thing could exist deep within a glacier....

Ozzie and spedangie thanks for your view and compliments..

I think it is pretty amazing how easily our eyes can accept the sand in the bottom of the canyon as snow and the striations in the sandstone rock can be layers of ice in a glacier.. makes my mind think it'd be pretty cold in there

Hi Andrew,

Great out of the box approach.

The blue really does work well

Spectacular shades. Interesting that blue is the complementary colour of orange (original colours) on the colour wheel.

Thanks vsch1, Zig, saly and MVASteve - Originally I tried a inverting the colors which, because blue is complimentary of orange did produce the same blue gradients, but the dark areas became white and the beam of light in the center became black, which gave it an other worldly sense that wasn't what I was going for and also looked like a color film negative. Using the colorize in GIMP I found substituting blue worked very well again because of it being the complimentary color but also because we can mentally accept it as ice and snow.
