What Kind of Purple Flowers Are These?

Posted in Photography by Bridget Casas on November 20, 2008

These really were purple when I took the photo but I thought it might be fun to do something different with it. I made it black and white and then added a filter that gave it a brown look, but not quite sepia. I also wanted to increase the contrast. Am I happy with the results? I think the flower on the right is a poppy anemone and they look like impatiens on the left. Again, my mother is not here to ask!

Anemone and impatiens…

Anyway, as you should know by now, I do try to create different kinds of images and see what Is successful. I don’t know yet about this one. Yes, I like this one – it is different. I feel like I have been adding a lot of flowers lately, but they are so pretty and I do enjoy photographing them. I really haven’t gone anywhere in the last week to take photos because of Donnan, so I have had to photograph things close to my home. I will expand my horizons soon!
