Up And Away

By iancrowson  
Cosmos Mono Tint
Mono conversion with slight tint..
I'm looking at form here rather than just beauty.
What I'm working at are BW conversions of flower pictures which show an improvement by being viewed in mono.
Overall I'm finding mono flowers a bit difficult as much of the beauty lies in colour.
I'm also looking at structures and detailing in other flowers. Any suggestion about suitable flowers and what to try would be good.
Thanks for critique, advice and comments,
V2 is the colour version
V3 has green faded a touch.
V4 a little more edge detail as Kate's suggestion
Thanks for looking

I love what you're doing here in both images.
The coloured version brings out the detail in the calyx and sepals
if I've got my flower bits correct! The fading out of the petals works in doing that.
I like the mono version but not sure about the effect on petals - think the leaves need a tad more detail
to separate from b/g?
Have you looked at Big-Beavis's recent images?
He's trying a new process but totally different from yours.
Your effect is more natural.

I do prefer this to yesterday's, the lighter stem is important. Mono has harmony.
