About the Image(s)

This was not so much to tell a story. Rather it was a study in the texture found in some plants and jn their see pods. I like the Monochrome version better than the original color version. I did not make many other changes besides the converson to Monochrome and increasing the contrast. I chose to leave the background lighter in contrast to the darker pod.

Very simple yet elegant, Ed. For me the point of interest is the revealing of the center part. It's more noticeable in the color version, which, for that reason, is somewhat more effective for me. You might be able to work on the tones so that it is of a different tone in the black and white and stands out more, for example, by darkening the petals above it just a bit. I also think this image might benefit from a subtle vignette, in addition to the frame. Overall, very nice.   Posted: 01/03/2020 13:08:44

This is a very interesting image. It's difficult to make a good b&w of flowers. I think you did well. I too would try to bring out the center of the flower. I would also select the flower and blur the background that I find a little distracting.

I feel you bring out the texture of the pod very well, Ed.
I like the idea of a slight vignette as Jack suggests. To my eye a little more contrast would add more emphasis.
Thank you for a pleasing image.   Posted: 01/11/2020 15:43:58
