    Probably could have been pushed a little bit more into blue.

    AAS: Fun touch with the socks.

    Forgot about this tie. It's less, um, vibrant than the tie I mentioned yesterday

    Oooof, shugz, toeing the line there. I'll leave it up to the voters.

    So far, ArchibaldLeach, AAS, Holdfast--the lazy bastard still needs to post that fit here--are the most clearly purple posters. The rest of us seem to be huddling on the fringes.

    Does my update not fall in the realm of clearly purple? From close up, that's about as purple as things can get, right?

    The close-up shows your tie to be clearly purple.

    As for mine, the color balance is shifted a bit warm. Let me see what I can do...

    EDIT: Flapdoodle. I've replaced the original pic with one that's closer, but it's not really capturing the essence of the tie. Maybe I'll try with the other purple tie tomorrow.

    Perhaps a higher vantage point for the camera would fix this, Fred? :)

    What is the cut-off for the challenge? Is it Friday, or does it extend over the weekend?

    You could have pushed it little more towards the blue and a little more towards the red. And if a little more why not a little more after that? As I said...
    * Google it.

    Nah... nothing could fix that shot .:crazy: "The Chair" has a very relaxing lean and I was rushing to finish the shot before the timer clicked, so I hit the chair running just about when the camera snapped.
    I was lazy and didn't bother with another shot.,....We aren't shooting for GQ.:D

    My reasoning can give you your hair back.


    Do I have your attention now?
