Do not use front flash light to take photo, sun light illumination at proper angle is better.

Hi Cliff,
What is your pallet for this color combination, it is very interesting. If I were to guess I’d say yellow+black for the greens, no blues/grey for the ‘blue’, an earth tone maybe Burt sienna. Yes!?
