Winter begins to loosen its hold. The almond blossoms, and the jonquils below, are the first happy signs in my garden.

Did a new version of the last picture in the previous post.

Dropped the exposure about 1.5 EV to blackout the background and get rid of the blown out areas, added a graduated filter with -0.8 EV on the right side to darken it further.
The reds come far better, the lights and shadows are improved as well. Good job, Bo.

Usually I don't like b&w flowers because I think there's an essential part of the flower missing. But an artful rendition is the exception. I like the tones and the low-key rendition of your hibiscus. Well done, Bo!

Thanks for the kind words!
I agree about flowers and other colourful things not usually making for good B&W, but I have also found that you have to try, sometimes it works.

Here in Victoria, Australia, we've been going in and out of lockdown like some kind of jack-in-a-box show. After being out of lockdown for a week, now were going back into it for the next week. I'm among the fortunate ones who can continue working, but it's still stressful, adapting to the constantly changing situation. So, here are some nice flowers from my yard, shot with an adapted Fujian 35mm CCTV lens which I'd sort of forgotten I had.
