Garden Flowers

Last Sunday, I spent some time in Joan’s garden photographing the flowers. I explored many individual blossoms and many angles of view and pretty much filled a memory card.

On reviewing the images, I was disappointed; none of the images were compelling… too much color! Despite the “good light” (it was mostly cloudy), the flowers were too bright and gaudy for my tastes.

After awhile, I realized that the most interesting aspect of the flowers were the patterns and textures. So I chose three “head on” shots and turned to black and white. These images are highly processed (much more heavily than my usual work); mainly to bring out the textures.

What do you think?

  1. Jury is still out on my opinion. There is good detail and contrast but there is something lacking in all three and I have not be able to pinpoint the reason.
