Madness of Daylilies!

Before these flowers started blooming last week of June, I promised myself I would be taking a lot of photos of these guys.  Enjoy them everyone!  Photos available at https://stevenanthony123456.smugmug.com/Flowers-and-Plants/

    I don’t know about the black and white photography. I think especially flowers should be as colorful as possible.

      Some flowers can absolutely be left black and white. It depends on finding the correct b&w match because Lightroom has different presets for b&w. Plus b&w is good for displaying dark emotions. I do agree though with you that some flowers should be left the color they are, but you do not want to display the same exact color photo over and over again because it gets the reader boring. I mean yes I do display the same image of like a Daylily lets say, but I use different presets for some of the images, I also use different tones of contrast, cropping, etc. It makes it better when you basically manipulate the images to different ranges of setting so people are not just limited to just one choice.
