Playing with gels

my poor dog rocket has been flashed so many times. He's the usual subject for my strobe testing. Last week it was with gels. This is with a red gel on the right, and green on the left, I turned the vibrance down really far. The colors don't make sense at all, but i like the shot. I tried playing with complimentary colors on either side. Learned quickly, that doesn't look good.

However, complimentary colors foreground-background do look good. When I get some more time, I'm going to play more with this manipulation of color temperture. And on a human. Rocket's just so easy, he's always around. I just grab a treat and tell him to stay. He stays interested and still for a short 10-15 minutes, then i have to give it to him, or he'll walk away.
