photoblog image Lace, Queen Annes

Lace, Queen Annes

By the way, all my black and white, Monday shots are straight conversions to black and white. If it is monotone rather than black and white it is in the title.  I like the challenge of finding the right shots to convert.  Some look terrible when you try them. This one I love in black and white but not in colour compared to the many colour shots I took of this field.

I completely agree with you - the flowers are brought out, and look so much brighter, by the monotone conversion!
Mary MacADNski: It doesn't happen all that often but I do like finding them.
Je préfère la photo en couleurs.
Mary MacADNski: I usually do but like this challenge.
I totally agree that the B&W conversion has made this image, Mary!
Mary MacADNski: Thank you. It is one that worked well.

Yes the b&w looks good Mary
Mary MacADNski: It popped out when going through a few possibilities.
Believe it or not Mary, I do try and choose something that works,or really doesn't as the mood takes me. I think this works well.
Mary MacADNski: Igo through a lot of poor ones before finding a good one. I find that hard to believe but I suppose if the original was edited first, it might save a few.
So do I Mary! Lovely.
Mary MacADNski: I love Queen Annes' Lace and like this one because of it.
This works well in b&w Mary.
Mary MacADNski: It does indeed. I wish all were this nice when trying them on.

Interesting what you say, Mary. I often find black and white does justice to a picture that I don't like in colour
Mary MacADNski: I try a lot and only a few pop out at me. Sometimes it is an improvement and sometimes not, I find. I like the challenge but find it time consuming.

I like 'em both, Mary.

In fact, I look forward to your shots of these cylinder bales every year.
Mary MacADNski: The commute today was particularly beautiful as the number of fields baling straw today during the commute was extraordinary. I think I know why. Today is a holiday (Labour Day) and is a gorgeous day 24 degrees and nice and dry. Tomorrow is going to be 25 and humidity will descend for several days. A hot dry day is perfect conditions for this job and farmers would rather work the holiday than in the humid conditions.

I love this conversion to b&w, too, esp. the white flowers glittering in the sun.
Mary MacADNski: The flowers stand out much better in the black and white. Thank you, Philine.

Excellent with the focus on the flowers.
Mary MacADNski: I have some with everything in focus too.
wow, what a view! perfectly framed, Mary
Mary MacADNski: Much appreciated, Ayush.
I have to go by instinct when I choose to go to b/w. Luckily, I have the "undo" key. smile having said that, this is a great choice for conversion...
Mary MacADNski: Tiu got it exactly for me too. I am not trained so it is instinct and my undo button is well used when trying these conversions.
I wouldn't argue with your conversion to B.& W. Mary, so much better and the flowers in particular stand out well.
Mary MacADNski: I find it an interesting exercise, these Monday b/w.
I really like the light on the plants, Mary. It shows much better in b/w.
Mary MacADNski: That is probably it, Frank. Thanks.

You're right, Mary, better in B&W.
Mary MacADNski: It worked a treat.
The bales look like they're tumbling down the hill toward the queen anne's lace.
Mary MacADNski: Bowling bales. 'tis the season.
