Monochrome Macro

Not every image that is in color will work well in black and white – and vice versa – but sometimes when there is enough contrast, details and texture in the subject as with this tulip, it converts very well.  I did a tight 1:1 crop on this photo in order to fill the frame with just the tulip bloom and added a warming filter to cut back on some of the cool tones of the original black and white edit. Tomorrow I will show you this tulip in color and talk about (in my opinion) what comes through best/better in one edit as compared to the other.
