Use contrasting colors to make better pictures

Using warm and cool tones in the same photograph adds interest.

One of the powerful tools we have as photographers is choosing the color palette when we shoot.  Something I suggest is to look for contrast in color values as a way to add punch to your pictures.  In this example, the coolness of dark blue of the stormy sky is in marked contrast to the warm tones of the yellow plants and the red dirt road.
