B&W mood

fall yucca, originally uploaded by photogeek21.

Another shot in the same day? Must have really put off the chores this weekend... But I couldn't resist shooting the yucca thats blooming in our front yard. I wanted a lot of detail so I used my sharp 50mm 1.8 and shot close and made this image with a composite of 2 images. 16 mega pixels - I hoping to print this life size (approx 4ft tall)

B&W conversion done with Adobe Lightroom - I really love the control you get in light room with the tone curves and the HSL sliders. I think the conversion is what makes this picture work.
