Windswept Sunflowers

The last of the sunflowers at Hitchin Lavender. Not the best day, cloudy and quite windy. Thought I would try a b\w.
Great in b/w as you get a real feel of that wind!

A beautiful B+W capture of those nice sunflowers and the breeze of the wind.

The b&w works well, brings out the light and shade as well as the different textures.

Sunflowers are not as easy to photograph as you think, and they do seem to grow in dusty areas. The black and white is a good editing choice here Jen.

@paulaw @jackie8 I always think of you two when I am at Hitchin Lavender. We certainly had the weather for our evening visit.

The black and white gives you some great contrasts. Good shot!

Nice shot!

I like this choice - shows the depth of shade in the centre of these wonderful flowers!

Lovely

I think the b&w emphasises the 'feel' that you wanted to capture and the contrasts are good too. They look as if they are huddled together with their backs to the wind.

Thank you for you visits and nice comment. Much appreciated.

Going black and white when there is a gray sky is a great choice. You can up the contrast a little more to bring out the drama of the clouds. Nicely shot!

These are cool. Sunflowers are so full of character. Nice as B&W.

@rachelwithey thanks, I was disappointed that it had blown up until I saw the shots on computer!
