A tale of two yellow buckets

I put this one in my OU portfolio as I like the colourfulness and thought it gave a good 'flavour' of the garden party atmosphere. Someone commented that they found the yellow buckets distracting, so I tried desaturating them... Now I'm not sure - so it's open for voting!


  1. Saturated, without doubt. I like something that captures my eye and holds it for ransom until it can free itself to wander over the rest of the shot.

  2. I think I like the bright yellow too!

  3. Maybe the commenter was trying to say that the presence of the yellow buckets was distracting, not the intensity of the hue. My attitude is, the buckets were there. You can try to minimize them, as you might have done by moving to the left, but if they remain in the scene, so there they are. Other folks would remove them with Photoshop trickery, but the most I will remove is a bit of acne.
