A little Lightroom touchup on a photo I took a while back. The original color photo was pretty boring, with a busy background and washed out colors. I blacked out the background and increased the saturation of the yellow flowers, then cut back the highlights to try to recapture some of the blown out (over exposed) areas of the flowers. After that, I processed as a black and white image, made a few small tweaks, and here we are.

I also like to toy with effects.  Sometimes you can get some nice surprises...I agree with Sherry the and B&W version.

i like the edits.. especially the monochrome version.. the delicate details pop and i like how the background faded away..
