Seeing Red : The human eye is drawn inescapably to red.  Sometimes just a tiny speck of red in a scene or an image captures our attention.  It can be enough to make us stop at an otherwise unremarkable looking 'thumbnail' of an image and open it for a closer look. 

This gallery is a celebration of all things red, and all the infinite varieties of that color.  Even though red is universally the color for warning of danger, I believe that most people experience it as a joyful color.  And of course, those of us who were raised in the Christian tradition, or at least in a culture that celebrates Christmas, associate red with the Christmas holiday season. 
 
Some of my choices for this gallery will be obvious.  The red is very 'in your face'.  Others exemplify the drawing power of just a small patch of red in a scene.  The subject matter can be almost anything.

Fun with filters : If you've reached this far, please take the time to 'leaf through' the gallery a page at a time.  You might find something you like better than what you see on the first page.  Newer entries are at the back of the gallery.

Typically I've placed at least two versions of each image here, an original for purposes of comparison, and at least one modified version.  Each set based on a given original is numbered, and within each set the different versions are indexed.  By putting these numbers in the first line of each caption, and sorting the gallery by caption, I can add different versions at various times, and keep related images together.  This means, though, that the newer sets are at the end of the gallery.

Note added December 2011:  All my post-processed 'filtered' versions of abstracts of close-ups of water and ice are now in a new gallery, 'Pure Filtered Water', seen here:  http://arctangent.smugmug.com/Photography/Creative-Alterations/Pure-Filtered-Water/20814839_MQzg93

Warning:  you can't always tell from a thumbnail that much has been done, so I encourage you to "open" each modified version, preferably in one of the larger sizes.  Better yet, view them via slideshow.

Please give me some feedback - as blunt and honest as you like - or better yet, constructive suggestions.  Enjoy!
