Colors: Machine wash cold


I'd had something else in mind when I saw this challenge, but I took my camera with me when I went to Sam's Club yesterday. I snapped a few photos in the warehouse, not particularly loving any of them. I started looking at them this afternoon, and this one eventually grew on me. I cropped it down to have only the Gain laundry detergent in it (which isn't even my brand), and then I just "auto correct"-ed in Microsoft Office Picture Manager, which brightened the colors even more.

I think the reason this grew on me is because (1) the box is very bright and colorful itself, but also, (2) a good laundry detergent will help keep your colors bright and last longer! (I sound like a commercial.)

That is a very cool picture and you are right the colors are so bright and vibrant. Gain makes your clothes smell good too. Good job.

I would have cropped it so the other things where showing behind it just several boxes of the Gain. Other than that great shot

A creative shot!

Way to think outside the box... or think of the box! ;)

I actually like seeing the stuff in the background because it gives depth. But I would have blurred it--do you have any software for editing?

GREAT use of color!

I don't have any photo editing software. Not really anyway. I have the standard stuff that comes with Windows and Microsoft, but that mostly just lets me crop...no effects. Then I also have the free version of Picasa, but I'm not very familiar with it.
