Monochrome Monday – When is red black?

When it’s a beautiful hybrid tea rose named Red Masterpiece that has been converted to black and white.  I feel that while the rose is beautiful in it’s natural red color, processing the image into B&W brings out subtle details in the petals and the rain drops that otherwise might not have come through.  As this was already slated to be run today, the car show beauties will start tomorrow 🙂

      Red is as red does or doesn’t 😉 Thanks

        Black’s the new red, perhaps!

    That works very well in monochrome – nice work.

      Thank you. Red is one of the colors that works well when converted.

    Nice mon image…I see the boffins at WordPress have come up with yet another annoying feature…

      Thanks and they just aren’t happy unless they are mucking up stuff.

      • #15 by infraredrobert on July 14, 2015 - 9:16 am

        Then they should be very happy…

      • #16 by imagesbytdashfield on July 14, 2015 - 9:26 am

        Actually this one isn’t as annoying as some in the past…hopefully I don’t come to regret saying that.

    I think you’re right about the B&W bringing out the detail. What do you use to process from color to B&W?

    • #18 by imagesbytdashfield on September 10, 2015 - 7:37 am

      It depends on what look I want to end up with but I use either Nik SE or Topaz B&W Effects

        cool, thanks
