Wildflower Diaries – Sun spurge

IMG_0942
Sun spurge (Euphorbiaceae) – highly poisonous

I bought myself a cheap and  tiny macro attachment for the iPhone. While it was nice being able to photograph details of flowers using this, the quality is as to be expected – both by the camera on the phone and quality of the attachment. Nonetheless, I will be using this more when I don’t want to be lugging a camera with me on a walk

Yellow-on-monochrome

 

Nothing probably gives a better contrast and highlights a picture, like something yellow on black on monochrome background. To test this hypothesis, I put forward this picture of a yellow flower against a desaturated background.

Yellow on grayscale.

Really interested in your thoughts!
