Cairo Time – yellow/cyan split

Color isolations allow a yellow sandy wash for a warm Egyptian look while allowing the picture to retain a contrast dynamic in the colors bringing all of the blues to a near opposite position on the color wheel.

Throughout the film Cairo time maintains a mostly sand yellow pallet with small bits of cyan to break up the wash. The mid tones in this film ride on the low side with rich color and strong but smooth contrast. Also note theĀ  orange bloom where the sunset sky creeps between buildings emphasizing the romantic feel of the film.
