Art Print?

By climbing_orchid
Evening all!!!

Have been playing around with this shot, has been my favourite for a little while and have used it as a basis to try out different effects on my orchid photography - would be very interested as to which presentation you all prefer!
Options are B&W, Sepia, High Key & Low Key

The bloom was shot on a black/white background depending on the version in natural light, no flash and tripod supported.

If any one has any other suggestions/ideas of how else I could modify please feel free to have a go or let me know what you would do!!

Hope you are all having a good week!

Liz x

Unusual but really does work, very arty looks like an etching. love V! and V4 I think V1 is my favourite , very eye catching

Oh, I thought it would be easy to choose, but I really do like them both, if they were mine I'd definitely choose the B&W, no the Sepia, oh blow.

Well done, great photo, did you cut out the background or was it already black?

1 is really nice. 3 would look like an illustration if you could define the petals against the background rather than have them bleeding into the white background.
