Liatris in Monochrome

Some images work so well in black & white or selective color. I particularly love those moody, shadowy, impressionistic works. Here is an example of one such type of work: Girl with an Umbrella by ~ania♥'s. Another Example: Lost in KL by M.A.M08. I would love to figure out how to accomplish the effect.

While not in the coveted impressionistic style, my image below is a field of liatris wildflowers seen in eastern Oklahoma. While I do think the image is beautiful in color, I think I like it even more in B&W. I hope you like!

Happy Saturday :-)

I had to think outside of my box a bit in editing this image and it is one of my favorites, so I decided to share this in the Simplicity Photography Challange this week, featuring the theme "Favorite".

I definitely like this in black and white. Great depth of field too by the way. I've been considering shooting a whole week in b&w from the camera just to see what the results are like.
