Another of the flowers in our garden. This time an Echinops flower while it was still in bud a couple of weeks ago. V3 is the original image, V2 the cropped version in colour and V1 is the mono version with a hint of colour brought back.

Thanks for your votes and comments on my recent uploads and hope you're all having a super weekend. Weather has been beautiful in the Highlands again today. Hope it's been good where you are too Smile

Going down south to visit my parents tomorrow so won't be on here for a while but will try to catch up with all your photos when I get back Smile

Version 2 is my favourite - some of the tones in the mono are a bit heavy for me. I really like the idea of a mono version, though.

V1 for me, seems to isolate the flower, with a hint of colour to draw you in.
Great detail.
