Flower Dreams by Kirsten Bruening

This photo was taken on an early summer morning when I was walking with our dog. The sun was still relatively low. As a result, the flowers and plants were bathed in soft light. I deliberately opted for a black and white photograph to capture and represent the light as much as possible.

I myself love macro photography, so this is right up my alley. I especially love the transparency of the petals. Almost like paper. The depth of field leaves a lot to imagination. And this is, at least for me, the recipe for a good picture.

Beautiful in it’s Simplicity. Without letting colour get in the way, she has played to the great strengths of black and white – texture and shape. The way she has put emphasis where lines intersect and how light accentuates different textures. Bravo!
