With Different Eyes...




"One way to open your eyes is to ask yourself,
'What if I had never seen this before?  
What if I knew I would never see it again?'"
Rachel Carson





I've been playing with the various macros that I've taken
and exploring black and white...
it seems to add a totally different dimension...
with more focus on light and dark...




What do you think???

  7. Thanks LeeAnn!!! One of the reasons I picked this photo to play with in B&W is because while I really liked the composition of the flowers...I thought the color was overwhelming, which actually made it somewhat bland...by converting it to black and white, the light became the primary focal point and the shadows supported and framed the light...I think it gave the pic more depth!!!
