Foxgloves in mono

By webjam
This is the last from the mono 'Moody Flowers' series - for now. I have some more but I think that EPZ is not the place to show these... Smile
All photographs were taken in our overgrown garden. I was looking for beauty in the flowers that were trying to survive (or from weeds that have loads of fun here).
I went one step further and manupilated the pictures into moody and dark images.
The foxgloves were enjoying a bit of sunshine, so I think that they are maybe the brightest in this dark series.

As usual comments and feedback are really appreciated. I also wonder which of the series do you like best....?

A nice study in contrast and texture. Just a hint of mystery too - I'm trying to visualize the colors (love foxgloves).

I haven't been able to comment on all of these Jacqueline but I have enjoyed the series a great deal - you have shown us an aspect of flowers that is all too easy to miss in the world of colour.
As for ePz not being the best place well it is all too easy for a photograph (however good) to be "lost".
We all know that the relationship between clicks and the quality of a photograph is, at best, loose and, at worst, inverse!
I hope you do continue to display your beautiful work here on ePz as it would be missed.

I echo the above remark. You have shown great imagination in showing these flowers in toned monochrome - most would only see the bright colours but you have achieved an effect that brings a different dimension to these flowers - yet I can understand why thay are passed by in the thumbnail gallery. Please do not let this prevent you from uploading more of them for us to appreciate.
