playing with monochrome

I’ve been spending more and more time playing with different monochrome settings in my post processing. I love how it brings out textures and makes familiar objects seem suddenly foreign. Some images simply don’t work in black and white, while others, sometimes rather dull color images, suddenly come to life when I shift them over. This image, of a jolly farmer’s market bouquet stuffed full of herbs and ranunculus, becomes antique and mysterious when put into sepia – a completely different mood from the color shot.
