One Word Photo Challenge: Eminence

Eminence sounds holy or religious and I guess when you think about it this colour does remind me of priests vestments.

For the technical people Eminence is a shade of Violet that is 63% saturated and 51% bright. For reference purposes, Eminence has the hex value #6C3082.

I however love the colour in these flowers…..

  4. Lovely images, gorgeous colors. Eminence as a color is new to me… Always something to learn from someone. 🙂

    • I know Katrina so many colours. Do we really need that many, its very confusing… shouldn’t it just be deep violet, light violet, medium violet etc…. .:D


      • As I was prepping for this week’s challenge, my boyfriend asked me what this week’s color was. He insisted the eminence is not a color and that we should just say purple. haha all in good fun of course. Granted, I can’t say I will ever incorporate all of these color names into my vocabulary. Although I did describe a house as livid, the other day.
