February Monochrome

Jude’s Garden photography challenge this month is monochrome, and this is my second entry. Last week I posted flowers, but like Jude I wouldn’t usually convert flowers to black and white and now here I am doing it again. As she points out this week, it’s all about texture, shape and structure, get that right and even flowers can look good in black and white.

So, what do you think, does this tick the box?

  1. Very interesting. Have you processed this as infra red before converting to black and white? It is a very strong contrasting image and great shape. And arrangements of threes always looks good. I think I’d go even further and crop it really tight though I love the fading shapes echoing at the right-hand side. You have raised the bar Gilly πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks honey, I just converted to black and white and then inverted – an action that often works well but I forget about it. Thanks also for choosing monochrome, I used to edit lots of photos and this month is getting me playing again πŸ™‚

I would love to hear from you . . .
