Wilted Black-eyed Susan 1 (2018-11-12 14-25-11b)
The flowers were planted in a garden in the Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois. I came across it as I was out running some errands. Even though there was still some color left to it, I thought it looked better in monochrome.
The photo was taken using a Nikon Coolpix P7700 camera.Editing was done with Luminar 2018. I started by cropping the image to a square format, Then I used the RAW Develop filter to adjust the white balance, raise the contrast and clarity and lower the highlights. Then I added the Accent-AI, Structure and Denoise filters. I also used the Tone filter to lower the SmartTone and whites and raise the blacks. Lastly I converted to black and white and fine-tuned it.
