A happy cactus in full flower.
Super tones and detail in this Caryn. I'll be in the southwest for 2 weeks very soon and this is getting me excited for the trip
@Len Saltiel, Thanks! Have a fantastic time in the area! It's a good time. There are some nice flowers out, and it's not TOO hot yet (though it's warming up fast).
an awesome presentation,similar highkey, fantastig result in contrast
@fabrizio, Thanks! I wanted to highlight all that texture (especially the spikes), and high contrast seemed the way to go.
This one has a cool look to it. Like it.
great catch! love the range of tones you captured here..
I like this one. Echinocereus. Not a hometown one, though. Arizona maybe?
@Katie, Great catch! Just outside of Tucson. I'm always so impressed when you fling around the Latin names of plants.
the sepia or B&W makes it even hard to see what it is… nice one Caryn
@Chantal, That was my fear, but I wanted to highlight the texture, and since I had a color one a few days later I went with this one. I'm a huge sucker for black and white.
I love the light sepia tone on this and the detail is fantastic.
excellent grey tonality and framing
