Photo of the Day - 9/6/2014

September 06, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

After I posted yesterday's photo, I got to thinking (always a bad thing, I know).  Part of what I really liked in the dahlia photos was the colors and the way the were distinct between different petals and parts of the flower.  So, since there were the clear divisions built in, how would it work in black and white?  The answer, I think, is pretty good.

I darkened the yellows a bit, the greens a lot (to darken the background), played with the oranges and reds.  Here's the result.

By the way, why do flower breeders (or whatever the proper term is for someone who creates hybrids) feel the need to put fairly stupid or inane names on really nice flowers?  Example:  the one below is named "E Z Duzzit", which is just BAD and DUMB and EMBARASSING.
