Yet another week has rolled around and so tomorrow morning (AEST) sees week 34 of Monochrome Madness on Leanne Cole’s blog. If you are interested in monochrome images then do visit the post with global submissions from some very talented artists. This is my submission – ‘A Hint of an Orchid’. I’ve been experimenting with very shallow depth of field using the 105 mm macro and am starting to get the type of images I want 🙂

Only nature can serve up beauty. Luxurious tone.
Shallow DOF amidst B & W is just about perfect (to me).
Me too! Thank you as always 🙂
Wonderful macro Lisa. Just enough to know it is an orchid.
Thanks, as always I appreciate your comment 🙂
This is absolutely stunning Lisa! Sublime… and my very favourite image… Ever! 🙂
Aww, you are kind – thank you 🙂 🙂
Very nice and it has a film-like quality to it. Practice will always help you get to the point you want to be at, but not everyone will take the time to work with new gear – or tqards their vision.
Thank you as always for your comment. I’m glad you got the film like quality – it is a style I’ve been trying to achieve for a while – had some disasters! – I think I finally worked it out and now I NEED to practice 🙂
Oh. I like it!
Glad to hear Rajiv!
Beautiful, texture like silk.
Thank you 🙂
Nice abstract image, I like the way you have got just the right angle to manipulate the orchid with depth of field. Great idea and execution.
Thank you Ben, and for taking time to comment again – appreciated 🙂
Beautiful stuff, Lisa. I use that macro a lot, especially with portraits, when I focus on the eye(s) and, with the lens wide open, “let the rest take care of itself” – which is what you’ve done here. I find it a very rewarding technique. We’ve had the tail end of a hurricane howl through, but the effects were not as bad as forecasted. Adrian
a silken flow!! Gorgeous!
Thank you 🙂
An unbelievably beautiful image. This alone has made me a follower. I will return to look at more as soon as possible!
Hello Emilio, thanks for the follow and your kind comment 🙂
