Fingers crossed for the mono version

By Kaxxie
Hi everyone

I experimented with mono last night to see if it works. Thanks HobbitDave for your suggestion. I have uploaded the slightly cropped original as well as the well cropped lead image. I couldn’t resist the colour crop as well. 😉 My new hip had to cope with some awkward positions trying to capture the sunlight highlighting the petals. At one point I almost ended up in the border. Thankfully I righted myself on the soil not on the dahlias. 😂

Thank you for all your votes and comments on yesterday’s yellow dahlia and to Rich for his precious award. I really appreciate you all.

Take care

Karen

The mono versions are good, but I still prefer the colour one, Karen.

Well done Kare,
really nice mono versions.
I have put up a mod, not to compare, but hopefully to help.

You may find my new toy of interest Grin
It is a Manfrotto KLYP, a light designed for cell phone video.
It is the ideal light to light the centre of a backlite inage like this,
Very small, very light and only £17.00.
It comes with mountings for phone, but I got a camera mount
from Small Things for less than a fiver.

Good in mono, Karen. My only suggestion would be a full square crop, a very dark vignette to take away the light sky and perhaps adjust the contrast a little to darken it. David's mod is a really good template to work from. I do like florals in B&W, so call me a fan!!!

Thanks for taking the time to do a mod David. It’s really good. I’ll look up that website & your light.
