Assignment 3: Colour: Landscape/Nature: Colour Harmony – Complimentary Colours

I searched my recent archive for this image of a small seaside town on the north coast of Madiera. I wanted a landscape showing the complimentary colours blue and orange and chose this as an alternative to a sunset. The high viewpoint has saturated  the colour of the sea, matching the intensity of the orange tiled roofs.

2832: 1/1000s f8 82mm, programme mode

Colour Details: The colour elements of this composition are balanced; i.e the proportions are approximately 1 orange:2 blue. The two diagonals, the church roof and the row of houses give a left right movement  bottom right to top right and the offset church tower gives some tension, balanced by the length of the church roof.
