Muted Colours - Thematic Photography

I'm not sure I have got the hang of this week's muted colours theme, but here's four shots that did not turn out as I expected.

Fowey Hall Hotel, Cornwall
The day was not as dull as it appears and the colours are not what I expected.

In my next shot the shade taking up half the shot gave a different look.

Nyhaven, Copenhagen
With a much older camera in the late 1950s there is a different look entirely.

St Rules Tower, St Andrews, Scotland
Shooting on a foggy day definitely mutes the colours.

Repairs to Teesside Flyover, Middlesbrough

How different each photo changes as light is added or taken away!

Nice, and thanks for sound advice. Like the flyover best; nice sky blue colour like an extension of sky.

Interesting contrast in the Copenhagen photo.

Fascinating exercise in photography. The colours look muted to me.

Great interpretation of the theme. I especially like the photo of St. Rule's Tower. It saddens the heart.

I love that shot at Nyhaven. Is that an anchor on the left? It is massive!

Middlesborough, poor old place, will it ever recover from those industrial scars...

I think you've "got the hang" of it very well, Bob. The misty atmosphere in the last one is really lovely.

I like shooting in the fog.

That tower is very cool!
