In this case I think the black and white post processing has lead to more intimate views of the detail of the flowers. Experimentation with colour is possible but it frequently has an artificial aspect, whereas with black and white there is more leeway in the range of tonality you can choose from.

I read that flowers in black and white, specifically wild flowers can pose a challenge. I can see why monochrome editing for flowers may not be a common approach. Opinions like rules can be limiting and testing the limits of what is possible in photographic processing never hurt anyone.

These tree photographs were taken in early spring, when there was still a chill in the air. I liked the abstract nature of the canopy; little has been done to to enhance the photograph. The original files were taken in black and white on my Fuji camera.

I did a couple of series on trees at two different parks, this is the first. We tend to ignore trees as merely a feature in a landscape. I thought I would try for something a bit different using contrast and shadows.

Flowers and other flora often make for good black and white photographs because the contrast between the colours is the kind of contrast that suits a black and white treatment. In this case I experimented with the photo you see below.

Shooting indoors without flash often means lower shutter speeds and more shadows. However, I was surprised at how much dark shadow I could remove to get detail in the top hat, another reason I like my Fuji XT-3.

There are many ways to age a photograph, and certainly a lot of presets to do that. Here, however, I took the colour picture and working with contrast, detail enhancement and white balance succeeded in getting a vintage, near grunge effect that I liked in black and white.
