The windy day around Post Oak Lake made taking wildflower pictures a challange. Went for it anyway! Yellow Coreopsis and Star Violets seemed to be moving in a dance with each other. Made me wonder if a still picture that seemed to have motion in it would be possible?

Tried several ways to process and ended up with this. From B/W with a color focal point and close crop with a color frame. Even the grass in the background appears to have some motion in it. Charlotte didn't quite get it but to me it dances!

  1. I really like the way you used color and b&w together in this picture!

    Yes the flowers definately look wind swept and in mid motion. Good choice of frames too.

    You are really getting creative!

  2. Ah, you're new Indian name shall be; "dances with flowers". LOL

    I'm with Paul, having the background in black and white makes the flowers pop a little more and gives it an artsy feeling.
