Double identity…

This image was shot during a recent hike at a nearby state park, originally I liked the color version, which gave a realistic rendition of the plant itself. But when I tried a variation of the image in black and white, it really took on a new tone. All of a sudden it appeared much more sinister, with the shadows providing an eerie, film noir effect. While there is always room to debate such things, I think one of the truly fun aspects of photography is to see where my mind can creatively take it. In this case, I have a beautiful color close up of some local flora… or a sense of danger, lurking behind the thorny shadows!
Hope you enjoy…
