An old tulip on its way to the compost heap. I thought I'd try B&W for a change.
A big thank you to Alda for her user award on my "Crunch"! Smile

Mono adds a certain elegance to flower portraits. This has an air of poignancy about it.

Works very well in mono Rende, maybe because it is at the end of it's life and has faded away? Great shot.

This is wonderful; fading flower images are one of my favourites - and this is perfect in mono. Shame I've given my UA already today - but please accept a virtual award! Smile

Beauty in extreme age and decay, there's a lesson there.
B&W captures the tissue-paper fragility.

Who would have thought a flower image would look so good in Black 'n white. Well done Rende.

The b&w treatment makes it look like paper, Rende. How very effective this is in its simplicity.
