No perfection

By webjam
This was taken in my garden after a little bit of rain. This picture is part of a series that I have been doing by converting colour into mono.
I like the colouring of this mono work, and went for some darker tones.
I also wanted to photograph 'less than perfect' flowers. Somehow they better show in mono than in colour.
Different from my earlier flower photography, very moody and dark instead of full of colour.

Your comments are very welcome,

This is an interesting treatment. I tend to agree with you assessment, imperfect flower = mono; there is a suggestion of the ageing process in b/w. By any standard this is extremely effective.

Yes, following on from what Bill says, a ruinous building full of cobwebs etc would rarely work in colour but in mono ...
This is another excellent shot in your mini-series Jacqueline.

Thank you for the feed back! Good to see that you understood why I took this photo with a cobweb!

I agree this wouldn't look so good in colour but you have achieved a wonderful mood here.
