Details in B&W

I was going to publish these images in color, but the color didn’t really add anything to them so I decided to show them in monochrome.  I took the first two pictures with the Olympus Pen-F and the 45mm lens just to try crop-zooming and then upsizing and processing them to show the variations in the flower pedals.  The second two pictures were made with the Olympus TG-4 in macro mode.  I was interested in seeing how the images compared.

Flower season is coming to an end so I’m not sure how many more I will be making like these this year.  I do want to capture some of the dried flowers, stalks, etc. in the wet area later in the fall and I might be able to use the TG-4 to make them if I can get close enough.
