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.
Do I need to say it? OK, Crap it’s Monday.
Here’s something from the backyard from this weekend.
This was shot with the new Canon EOS M.
I was playing with this sunflower, I wanted to do something different. SO, I changed the pedals to light purple and dropped the color out of the background. Do you like it?
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 added the HDR effect to this colored sunflower to add detail and grain. I think it is different than the normal yellow sunflower.
Not sure the name of this plant, but I saw it while I was hiking in the Everglades in South Florida.
I shot this in color and converted to BW in Silver Efex Pro. I like the way your eye follows the leaves around the circle like a clock.
What do you think?
Hungry? Hungry for some HDR berries?
I don’t really know what kind of berries these are. (I forgot to read the label under the bush). But I liked the color and texture they had.
I then did a 3 exposure, 2 shot, HDR process to the image.
Something for my beautiful wife. Happy Valentine’s Day.
