Monochrome Monday - Tulip
For this Monochrome Monday I thought it would be fun to compare the processing on one of the recent tulip pictures I took. In the spring around here there are many farms growing tulips and they all are blooming at once and turn the fields a very pretty color. If it gets nicer again I will try to get out and take some pictures of the tulips fields this year too.
For now here’s a single tulip inside in the sunlight. I processed this first picture using GIMP. There are many types of black and white film simulation to try and it is fun to see the different results.
Below is the original picture as it came out of my Galaxy S9+. I used the zoom lens on this picture.
Here’s a picture that Google Photos did some color enhancement on. It almost looks glowing to me like the flower has some internal light.
Comparing the three pictures it seems to me that the first one gives a better depth and feel for the structure of the tulip with more emphasis on the form. I think the others are interesting too in different ways.
Thanks for reading! I always value your support! Special thanks to @old-guy-photos for monochromemonday.
