I tried to challenge myself with a color scheme that is out of my normal earth tones/ jewel tones palette. And the one color I shy away from...is PINK. PINK PINK PINK! The one thing that inspired me was this photo from FixItNowSamuri who goes on amazing hikes and then takes equally amazing photos (you can view these here) . This photo has a beautiful subtle color scheme so I thought I'd give it a try.
I am happy with how it came out, but may try it a couple more times to get it more exact. The sky color is actually a complex layering of colors and when lit correctly, the yellow undertones make the subtle top lay of blue look really interesting. The hardest part was getting the shadow on the center tree to look close to believable, and the tint of the pink kept getting too red or too purple...it took a good 4 different tries to get it right!
The ground color on this is also quite interesting...in the photo it looks yellowish...but there are tones of pink in it...which is why I loved the initial photo and it's color scheme...all the colors played together.
