Okay, so there are no actual feathers in this picture. But the petals make me think of feathers, especially the ones up in the top right corner, so it seemed like a fitting name.
Anyway, I don’t normally switch flower pictures over to black and white, because I love featuring the colours so much. But a grey-scale palette just seemed to suit this one too much not to make the change. Without colour, it’s a lot easier to see the soft texture of the petals and the slight swirl in the centre of the foremost flower.
Or maybe that’s just me. What do you think–would you have preferred to see this picture in colour, instead?
