  2. Hello Again Genie,

    I like day lilies too. Tracy used to have a bed of day lilies out back but they're gone now.

    I suggest you try local contrast enhancement (LCE) with the color version and then try another B&W conversion.

    I'd use Amount = 20%, radius = 40 and threshold = 0. I think you'll like the results and the B&W conversion with come out with more contrast as a bonus.

  3. I like both shots. I am partial to sepia and the color is so vibrant!

  4. It's such a pretty flower! Both nice, but I like the tonality and texture in the second one!

  5. I love when a flower is desaturated - then we can concentrate on its beautiful form and textures, as seen in your photo.

  11. All our lilies have long since bloomed. Thanks for the lovely comments about butterflies. I do hope we can get together at some point - my brother in law lives in VA so perhaps when we go to visit we can meet.

  13. Wow you still have lilies? Why my lilies will only bloom in spring and that's it. Any special fertilizer? Or they really like to be under the sun? My lilies are in the area where there is a lot of shade. Love this one ^_^
