What do I think? I think this is UA worthy -- a wonderful frame-filler with just a slight glance of the leaf edge in the upper right.
Both color and B&W are quite interesting to me.
Nice work, Jennnnnnn.
I agree with Hermanus -- a brilliant image. Ordinarily, my favorite floral images are in full color but I really like V2 here -- has a intriguing, almost x-ray, feel to it.
Very creative, Tish.
Great shot -- an interesting POV. We used to love to play with milkweed when we were kids in Western New York State.
By the way -- the snow has hit my old neighborhood today. So far 51 inches (1.3 meters) of snow and still falling.
My answer to the question is typically:
"I could have my Nikon save my shots as JPEGS or Tiffs but I have my camera set to save the images as RAW files. I'd rather decide what information to discard when the conversion is made (to JPEG, Tiff, etc.) -- rather than having my camera decide for me.
So -- I have these RAW files that must be processed before they can be displayed or printed. There is a limited list of software that will do this for me -- Photoshop, Nikon Capture, etc.
Photoshop is my favorite.
