A ROSE IS A ROSE IS A ROSE


The sun was so intense when I took this picture that it blew out the petal. I really liked the shadow play so I converted to black and white and decided to keep the shot.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week.

une rose est une rose, et le b&w lui va si bien, très belle photo, et j'aime les ombres sur cette photo.

a rose is a rose, and the b&w it is so very beautiful picture, and I like the shadows in this picture.

Never discard a picture,
what better proof than this! :-)
Black and white really plays up what could have been a flat picture otherwise, great job.

Your B&W's a re really looking good! You've emphasized the shape and form of this flower instead of the color, and it works!

ruth said...

How lovely, Sue.

JAM said...

I like it too. It looks a lot like the old masters like Weston and the early 20th century photographer's stuff. Simple and dramatic.
