Well, here's my entry to the B/W Challenge. I took my lovely Trillium post called: Trillium Up Close In Isolation and turned it into a almost B/W, wanted to leave a hint of colour.

I know I'm a little slow but I guess the tortoise won the race, lol, or better late then never, as my poppa use to say.

Hope you enjoyed you view and Comments Most Welcomed.

Did the work in Adobe Photoshop as a selective colour then brightened up the actual blossom.

Have a wonderful day and take care my friends, &hearst; Skates

Still trying to play catch up on commenting. Please be patience.

Pat, your perfect use of selective coloring has created a delicate post. Have to be honest above being polite. Have some doubts whether this one belong to the B&W challenge. When considered strictly, a B&W-image should be a B&W-one although I understand that you've added more 'charm' in it to create a more vivid and attractive one. See that all the other commenters don't have a problem with that. So I'll quit my hesitation, lol. Excellent post anyhow my good friend!

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

Dramatic use of selective colouring. Will do very well in The B&W Challenge.
