Bean Flower

Bean Flower

The image is of the blossom of a green bean. I was intrigued by the delicate nature of the white bloom. The bright green of the leaves and stalk were distracting, so I decided to convert to monochrome to highlight the fine texture in the petals. Shooting wide open in Macro mode on my Nikon P6000 point and shoot didn’t give me the selective focus that I wanted. The pole that the bean was growing on was still too sharp for my liking, so I added a little Field Blur in Adobe Photoshop CC. Black and White conversion was done in Nik Software’s Silver Efex Pro 2.

In the best light…
