Yesterday marked my first attempt to shoot monochrome with the new camera. I am extremely pleased with how these turned out. I hope you enjoy them as well.
The first is one of my favorites. I love the cascading effect of the petals going out of focus to the edges.
This next one is best at full-size. I found my eye wandering over the edge of each petal; for me it had the same entrancing feeling as watching ripples move across water, or waves on the ocean.
I don't believe I could have posed these four roses any more attractively:
This final pictures is Gary's favorite, a timeless rosebud.
I would greatly appreciate your feedback... do any of these pictures speak to you?
