And here’s a monochrome version of yesterday’s poppy post. Click here for the colored version.

Do you prefer one over the other?

I’m not usually crazy about monochrome shots of flowers. After all, color is their main charm. But in this case, with the light and shadows dancing on the petals on a late spring afternoon, I think sepia works well on this shot.

  1. I like this too…but I think I prefer the colored version 🙂

    • Thanks for commenting, Gracie. It’s interesting to hear different people’s takes on the color vs. black and whites. I prefer this shot in monochrome, but of the previous two, I prefer the colored shot.

  2. Great shot ! Well taken! =)
