1, 2, 5, 6 and 7 for me. DOF control is great.

I especially like the framing or perspective of the flower bud and the water feature shot but they are all very nice on my eyes.

I do what I do and that's really all there is to it for me, sorry to say, Walter. There's nothing earth-shattering or deep to what I do, I play, I explore a little and I share, probably too much, it's that simple. Sometimes I document, sometimes I interpret and I have no need or desire to remain in any one confine in this regard.
Nonetheless, it inspired me to go and see how I see the garden at the moment. Which in and of itself was an interesting exercise, armed with a cheap-as macro lens and even cheaper speedlite.

My take on it is that you are doing exactly what the essays suggest. Maybe it confused you a tad??

DJT wrote:Yep, All good.
I think it is the lack of colour that pleases me with these.
I have attempted many a photo in the garden in colour & very few keep my attention, but these B&W versions
I think colour gardens are too distracting, these are pure subject & that is what I think is pleasing (moving in a good way) me.
Plays with Light wrote:...I found this an interesting exercise, thinking mindfully about what I could achieve with black and white solely. It led me to approach things differently, really paying attention to light and form. It also got me using the speedlite differently, which was challenging, with it in one hand and the camera in the other...

I think B+W takes the unfamiliar of the very small one step further than colour.
