Sunflower Monochromes

My grocery store sunflowers are starting to droop and turn brown on the edges, alas.  I took a bunch of macro shots- and then turned two of my favorites to high contrast, split-toned black and whites, which I then textured with Kim Klassen’s golden.

  7. Great images and processing! Love seeing the sunflowers in black & white as it allows the texture of the flower to become the main attraction.

  13. I had sunflowers last year and loved the shots I got from them. Sadly, I have none this year so I thoroughly enjoyed your photo captures. And monochrome seems to always bring out the most amazing details.
