CEE’S BLACK & WHITE CHALLENGE – CLOSE UPS/MACROS

“I decided that if I could paint that flower in a huge scale, you could not ignore it’s beauty.” ~ Georgia O’Keeffe

Georgia O’Keeffe did indeed paint HUGE fabulous flowers.  The colors were vibrant and there was no mistaking the paintings were hers.  Actually, she also painted some incredible black and white – which I didn’t know until now.   I wonder if she had painted my flowers, would they look something like this?

Personally, I think a flower dressed in any color is fabulous.

  1. Hi Gem! The top one is my favourite, you’ve a lovely range of pale tones there. Picky point: the black and grey provides a good backdrop, and if you’d framed the shot a teeny bit more leftwards, that backdrop would have completely encompassed / framed the bloom. I’m a big fan of O’Keeffe.

    And, in the bottom one, having the flowers out of focus works well, leading the eye into the (mouthwatering) menu. A 🙂
