During Covid (in the summer) I have been out photographing flowers and insects. Outdoors, no problem–social distancing, no mask!
I came across this almost perfect Giant Sunflower growing only two blocks away from home. Perfect flower and very good exposure.
I wondered what it would look like in black and white, so I used a yellow filter and boosted the contrast and decreased the brightness for this image.
What if I made it a psychedelic Sunflower?
I thought the background was a bit too cluttered, so selected just the flower and pasted it onto a black background.
I must try this with some insects. Dragonflies say.
