  1. The light & dark contrasts show up so well in B&W 👏 I might have to try a few more of my floral shots as B&W 😃

    1. Thank you .. I think some flowers work well in Monochrome.. sometimes I click between colour and monochrome to see which I prefer xx

      1. Very true; as you said in your post, it’s sometimes the lighting of the scene that lends itself to monochrome 😃 I’m sure I’ve got some archive shots I can try it on 🤔

        1. That’s why I love Lightroom… you can create Virtual Copies of an image… and then see which you prefer. I did use Snapshots in Lightroom for a while.. but to compare you have to keep clicking from one and the other. With virtual copies in the Library module you can compare both images.
