Default Blue

Blue Sky.
A Long Time Ago, When I Was A Little Boy, I Asked My Daddy Why The Sky Was Blue.
He said son the sky is blue because the main constituent of our atmosphere is Nitrogen. Since Nitrogen has a wavelength of 530nm and Rayleigh scattering is inversely proportional to the fourth power of wavelength we see light that is scattered mostly at 400nm. Which is of course blue.
The End.

i really like minimalistic compositions. and this one really works well. i love the low placement of the roof, and the contrast of the chimney on the dark blue sky and burnt reds of the shingles.

very creative and well done.

Thank you, I also appreciate minimalist comps. Less is more and all that. This is actually the roof of my house and the thing I find funny is it's actually a fake chimney. Don't know why they'd bother but there it is. I like how the colours came out on the film as well. It's pretty much straight from the scanner accept for a touch of levels and I very slightly burned the chimney to bring out a bit more details. So there's my confession.
