Well it’s day 5 of 5 in the Black and White challenge.
Thanks to my friend Jerry Ireland for including me in this.
This is one of our orchids. We, Angela Aristizabal-Myeress and I,
have about 8 plants. Most bloom several times a year.
Here is a simple BW of a beautiful orchid.
I used Nik software to convert from color to black and white.
I like the texture on the pedals. Very detailed.
I took this shot of the butterfly and then added a filter from NIK to give it alittle something “extra”.
What do you think? I’d love to hear your comments.
I took several shots of this butterfly, but the best was this image. Caught him flying.
We found this sunflower field and I took LOTS of shots.
I used Nik software to soften foreground and give it a “glow”.
Sunflowers make you smile.
I shot these flowers and then used soft focus filter to lessen the depth of field.
I like the softness of the image. Do you?
I haven’t photographed any flowers in awhile, so I thought it was time to do some.
This is a macro of an orchid that I gave my wife. No, I wasn’t in trouble. Just thought it would be nice.
I added the HDR effect to this colored sunflower to add detail and grain. I think it is different than the normal yellow sunflower.
I shot this over-exposed. It blew-out the ground and some of the detail.
I like the effect, do you?
We visited the Sunflower Farm in Rutledge, GA.
A very HOT day. But it was fun walking around the field.
