For my final major project, colour and line is very important. Our beautiful chickens (aka Margot and Tilly) have marvellous contrasting markings. Here Margot's blue laced feathers contrast really well with the rusty, almost red colour. Whereas Tilly's stunning gold laced feathers contrast well against the black. The natural colours work together extremely well, as opposed to man made synthetic colours, which can seem rather harsh by comparison.
As far as colours go, I tend to veer towards a more natural colour palette. My local beach has a lovely selection of contrasting but harmonious colours, not including the pier....it is a shame one cannot hear the sea rolling in too. The sense of wide open expanses always photographs well.
