    Quote:Portuguese and carnations is a combination of a dramatic 70's image... but I think it was in colour Blush
    You know how the original looked so I can't comment too much Smile I may had loved it!
    A good friend, female, who loves flower photography had presented a series for black and white pictures on her local group for a competition. A stern judge, I know the sort, had told her ''Black and white flowers? No,no, flowers are distinct for two things, smell and colour. Your pictures have none of it'' Until now I could see her point; flowers have shapes and textures too. But on this instance... I am with the judge, lol
    Not stern, but still friendly Tongue

    thank you for your kind words dear PabloPhotographer,
    I share some of the feelings and understand you in certain way.
    by that I can assure you with just my only argument about my inclination towards the light which is "and then what colour would be if there was no light?"
    by sharing some feelings I mean that it was a tough decision. the subjects background was that good. the lady's hair for the vibrant red carnation petals and a somewhat dark-beige for the green stem (perfect in other words). I even went further trying to eliminate the terrible colour shifts and casts caused by the artificial light.
    not that by any means I could made colour selective. a very destructive way of emphasizing things IMHO.
    in this very bad light the recovery was big and attention was patiently given in post-processing to create a sort of what I call "a tension line with luminance" to bring the eye to my subject.
    I do really believe with colour composition beyond luminance and I've felt the emotion was also beyond any colour in this case (still and humbly agree with each word of what you have said).
    so again big thank you!

    also thank you to Cats_123! Wink
