Monomad Photographic Contest: Let's take the color from the flowers!

Life can be black and white, isn't it? Life is becoming more and more gray, monochrome. It's a strange sensation. Strong and bright colors attack us from all sides, but I feel calm when I can turn these colors into B&W.
I have chosen #monomad for two reasons: because it encourages me to post daily and because it pushes my creativity. It's often difficult to choose, as in any contest, the best option. It's subjective and it depends on our state at that moment!
This is my entry for the #monomad contest


Since I intend to use more photos in this post I declare that the above photo represents my participation in the contest. Each time I have several variants and I will choose from them. I'm undecided until the last moment.






Colorless flowers have something sick in them, they make me think of death.
Maybe I'm crazy, can be wonderful photographs and B&W but I believe we should not take the color of the flowers. Maybe then you will ask me why I did this? ... Because of the contest and the desire to participate.

Finally I decided to put the color back on the flower. On the contest photography.


You can try this contest, bring a lot of joy if you love the photo, the black and white photo and love to look for hidden beauty and meaning. Here are all the details of the participation: MONOMAD

Nice entry. My favorite is #3

06.09.2019 12:25

Thank you! It means I was wrong...

06.09.2019 12:39

Why? Tastes differs :) I wish you good luck in the contest!

06.09.2019 13:58

Of course, you're right! Thank you!

07.09.2019 19:43

Oh, thank you! I didn't know that.

07.09.2019 19:48

There's just something so elegant about seeing a flower and its petals in B&W instead of its normal colors and hues!

06.09.2019 13:29

I'm glad you like that. What I'm writing is more of an attempt to upset readers and to try to get them to react.

07.09.2019 19:46

B&W tends to give more detail, always enjoy an insect or two in photography, the stems do the same trick! Excellent photography @bluemoon all flowers are gorgeous.

Thank you very much!

07.09.2019 19:38

Great work. You don't need color to show the essence of the photos. Great work!

I really like the flower in monochrome, @bluemoon. It adds depth and dimension and I think a kind of charm. So I’m afraid I can’t agree that it has a sick quality. 😁

I do agree that black and white is calming. I has that effect on me too!

07.09.2019 05:23

Thanks and glad you do not agree with me! Thinking further, I realized that I was not right.

07.09.2019 19:27

Well, maybe it depends. Like dying roses in black and white could definitely look sick, or maybe spooky. You could have fun playing with the effects!

07.09.2019 20:41

Oh, yes...everything is relative after all!

08.09.2019 13:28

I think black and white is beautiful in its own way. These are really peaceful bunch.

07.09.2019 14:06

Yes, it is very well said and I must take into account your opinion.
