It doesn't do a lot for me ... not sure why just yet (other than points already mentioned @ focus).
But, I am diggin' the creative exploration of the unusual light source, as well as the play in color to generate a "mood" ... even thought the "mood" isn't quite doing it for me.
I'm not sure if John is lurking about much these days, but I'd like to hear his take on it.
The only thing that comes to mind for me atm, is that I'm looking for some black/neutral to "anchor" it. Without that either in gun, or the background, it leaves me feeling like it is a color cast rather than cool lighting. Not sure if that makes any sense or not. Again, I'm still a bit at this one.
Here's a look at the RGB separated into the three different channels (straight splits, i.e. no pp tweaks to taste). Interesting (imo) how differently they "present" for us. Had you used all "white" light, the differences would likely not be as dramatic. So, while the color versions of the blue & red lighting didn't do much for me ... the mono channels are a different story ... along with the ability to S&P to taste from here.
I'm diggin the mono's, with the Green channel being most dramatic since the lighting was R&B ... and the realm of possibilities they present both for presentation and for study.
