Sunsets are most often golden as are the autumn leaves. Gold can be a regal color seen in palaces or a very subtle color seen in children’s hair. Gold can represent wealth as in the color of coins themselves. Profotio is looking for not just the brilliance of the color but also for images that project the "feeling" of gold. Please submit up to four of your best representations of this most brilliant hue. Only color images should be submitted.
