your most popular color?

posted on 17th of march, 2010

they say that color can affect your emotions.
that is why in fast food joints where they do not want you to hang around, bright bold uncomfortable color scheme are part of their interior decoration.

other colors are said to calm us down. that is why hospitals, old age homes,etc. have these calming tones.

so, what is your most popular color? i don't mean the color of your clothes, or your car, or even your pet poodle's food bowl, lol.
but more so, what is the most popular color scheme in your list of selling images?

i am sure for many of us, it will be white, due the copyspace we use in isolated images.
but white is not a color. so that does not count at all.

i have here just a selection from the first two lines of my most popular images. as you can see, blue ... and earth tones..
are the most "lucky" or most popular for me.

would it be a different color that will be my "lucky" shade this year?
well, that's left to be seen.

soooo, tell me,
what's your popular or most "auspicious" color?

Blue with a bit of green are the predominant colors in about 3/4ths of my best sellers, however, two of my best sellers are yellow and orange - a couple of fire photos that have sold the most at DT and other agencies, When I uploaded several blue photos about a month ago--concepts, nature and abstracts, I noticed a spike in my earnings. After that, earth tones seem to predominate--and most of those are concept shots, not nature.

As for me it is blue for outdoors, for mood and party- flash colors and multi, for serious shots- grayish and for copy space- WHITE!!!!lol But I love a mixture of a warm brown with sky blue ... Earth and water

I love blue too, and many of my photos are blue, the colour of water or the blue sky.

I love blue much! Brownish effects is also great! The rest of the colors are fine :)
Recently I'm having trouble with green requests from some clients :D

As I love blue, I makes a lot of images in blue tones and they are successful a lot. My second successful color is green and to my surprise also warm tones like orange and old brown.
