Still Life with Carnations V3

I hope you’re still with me as I explore how many ways I can edit this one little teapot of carnations.  Having done two color versions I just had to go the opposite direction and go monochrome.  With this image the process was from Lightroom to Topaz Black and White Effects to PSE.  While I like this image in color more because of the pretty apricot color of the carnations, I think it holds its own in b&w because of the simple composition.

What do you think?

    The shallow focus makes this work…too much DOF in this monochrome shot would have not had a good point to focus on.

    It definitely holds its own in B&W. It brings out the form of the flower. Cheers!

    I like it better… Monochrome.

    Hm, the impact is so different after seeing two colorful images then the monochrome..
