More experiments in black and white processing of foliage. This time Nandina (sometimes called sacred bamboo) leaves. I appreciate your comments and thank you for viewing.

I think you've nailed the B&W processing.
This is a beauty.

Indeed. It now comes down to personal taste. I prefer the earlier Hosta image by a hair.

I like this one a lot. The B&W processing gives a 3D look, I feel like I could touch those leaves.

Hi francois. Thanks, and I'm happy you noticed that, as I worked on it extensively while processing. It's nice to know that the technique worked in this case.

Your processing worked perfectly, at least for my weary eyes!
