Nice photograph. It looks great in B&W.

Kel said...

yes Karen, B+W images have a strength to them, perhaps its that we can focus on the shapes, the light and dark, rather than being distracted by colour

Dimple said...

This image is certainly powerful, and a little strange. Looks like the seed heads endured some strong rain and wind!

I agree with Dimple. Powerful image. Looks spare and rich at the same time.

The contrast in textures between foreground and background works for me :)

Karen, I am glad you stopped by my site which led me here. You take some amazing photos. I am now a groupie!

Carver said...

What might be unnoticed in colour, looks fabulous in monochrome. I really like the DOF in this image.

Woody said...

looks like it has been rained upon. I like the contrasts in the shot.

The dandelion seed heads looks fantastic in monochrome!
