[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This lovely little bunch was growing along a short trail just north of Whistler, BC. It also looked nice in colour but bunchberry also lend themselves to some nice Black and White conversions as well.
I posted an original colour version in WS.

Hey, that's pretty cool! I like the b&w bunchberry version. Great composition!

Hi Tim, I can see why you converted to B&W it give quiet a graphic image with simular line of pattern across the image, with this in mind I did a workshop to try and streghten the pattern. Though I prefer the colour one for the vibrancy of the colours.
A question, is it true the berries of this ground cover cornus are edible. I ask because the plants I grow at work for the 1st time have bright red berries and I seem to rember reading some where they were.
TFS yours Robert

Every so often, as I have also done, I am reminded of how good a picture can be when converted to B&W. This is a good example of the "it works" time. Having been a film B&W photographer for so many years taught my eye how to "see in B&W". Transiting to color was hard on me brainpan. Digital has certainly solved that as you have proved here.


*Added after Rob's post....I can see the difference in thought patterns between photographers here....each has their own merits. Rob sharpened up some bits which looks good..yet Tim's has that not so scientific look. They both have merit in photography. One would suit a specific group or article or mag, while another might be better for a different reason...so it's apples and oranges...and it's nice to know Rob does some workshops...nice job Rob...

Hi Tim,
I like the black and white, and what pretty flowers and leaves, great contrasts. TFS
