PMS 354c Electricity Pylons

paint them green, then they’ll never be seen

Electricity pylons are a blot on many otherwise pristine landscapes. The idea here is to paint them all chroma green (Pantone 354c), and use this colour for the cabling as well. If you do this, photoshopping them out of all future photographs and film productions becomes so much easier. Wind turbines and other visual intrusions can get the same treatment.

       This would make things more dangerous for low-flying aircraft, or those attempting an emergency landing, so no.   

       But no fishbone, as the intent of the idea is reasonable and otherwise quite acceptable.   

       There is a good reason why tall structures like chimneys and transmitter towers are often painted in lurid red and white bands ...

       Hang on. Chroma-key only works when there's no other green in the scene. You'd end up deleting grass, trees, bushes and Sturton's favourite scarf.

       Your pictures will still feature floating bird poop and posters for bands that no one's ever heard of.
