Grey Skies for Grey Eyes (Large against Black better view)

Odd day today start at 1200 midday and finish at 900pm ! Not too keen on that so 'good morning' upload. In the garden bright oranges and grey skies. So the image reflects just that !
Great image to reflect the day.

Love the B&W centre to the flower, it draws you into the image and makes a really interesting shot.
June 13th, 2013  
Caz
Awesome shot, love the coloring
June 13th, 2013  
Wonderful job at channelling how you fee into your photo. I love the colouring, great edit. As I think back to December when I started this project, one thing that always struck me about your photos is the wonderful use of contrast. You really are the master of this. Whether it's b&w or colour, you have a gift at finding the perfect contrast.
June 13th, 2013  
Incredible clarity and texture! I feel like I could touch it!
June 14th, 2013  
I like what you have done I in this with the drain of colour. Very good and well thought out,

June 14th, 2013  
Astonishing detail when viewed large and eye-catching processing.
June 14th, 2013  
I like this, it makes me wonder if the colour is fading away or gradually changing to orange, like a glass, half empty or half full! : )
June 14th, 2013  
Love the colors and all those little petals! Great compositon too!
June 14th, 2013
