Sun Setting on a Succulent

Sun Setting on a Succulent

US Botanical Gardens

Trying something different, I wanted to work some B&W today and
when I looked at this picture I wanted to play with the levels of
color in the final B&W mix. These are actually the same green leaves
with the bright red edge that is in my preious PaD posting. Using
the CS3 B&W conversion I was able to totally mask the difference in color.
I finished the picture with some noise to simulate a Tri-X Pan grainy shot
to mask some of the distracting texture on the individual leaves.

Nikon D200 ,Nikkor 105mm f/2.8D AF Micro
1/60s f/13.0 at 105.0mm iso100 full exif
