Garden photography February: monochrome #2


For February’s garden challenge Jude is looking for monochrome photos (either black and white, or tones of one colour), encouraging us to look for texture, shape and patterns.

This is a young monkey puzzle tree (araucaria araucana).  I’ve applied an effect to it, which I quite like,  but I like the original too.  Which do you prefer?

  1. I have one that would fit perfectly too, but I’ve used it before (a long time ago). I rather like the painterly effect, Elaine, but the original is so much more vibrant. I guess that’s the point! 🙂

  2. I think the original looks softer, more welcoming, but I like the processed one too. Each sends its own message.

  3. My favourite is the processed image. Brings out all those spiky bits!

  4. Great shapes in this image. I like the original one best.

Now it's your turn
