Well, as with all things life, the best laid plans can and at times, go awry. Firstly, I had no intention to enter any photo challenges or anything on that line of thought for that matter, well, because life for me is so busy and I really thought I had no time to spare. Secondly, I told you I am taking 3 days off from blogging, and here I am, with this post ONLY, opening comments. Why? Because your feedback is important to me.
Yesterday, in editing a Rose I planned on sharing with you today, nothing I did set right with me. There was just too much of a very bright orange color which in my opinion, was overwhelming. I was fascinated by the form of this Rose, and so I took a very closeup of its ruffles. In so doing, the entire frame is of this Rose. Just too much color.
So, I said, “What do I have to loose?” and pushed the “convert to black and white” option. As soon as I did, my jaw dropped and at the same time, I window popped open with endless options to adjust the black and white image. What I saw was perfect, so with NO more adjustments, I left it as is.
And that is when I decided to enter this Rose in Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness Week challenge. For this reason I am opening comments because I would very much like to hear your thoughts about this Rose.
Here is this spectacular Rose by the name of Fragrant Cloud. She is extremely bright orange, and in later posts I will post her in real color. But for today, she is a Monochrome Beauty.
…. Fragrant Cloud in Monochrome Glory! Enjoy! I really thank you for viewing Her and admiring Her. I know you will admire Her. She is just that gorgeous! Love, Amy
