Calla lilies are among my favorite flowers. I opted for a sepia treatment to emphasize the lines and curves.

    This is such a Work of Art! The curves, the lines, the texture, the light….just so beautifully simple and so beautifully elegant….this is one of those images that speaks to the .. less is more.. theory….

    Hi Celeste, how are you my friend…love this and did you read today that I just started to take black and white..although this isn’t really black and white, but whatever I love this beautiful flower!!!

  • Hi Sherri! I’m doing fine, and I did read about your accepting b&w. I decided to submit this first, as it’s the first b&w I ever posted on RB, about a year ago. Back in my film days when I was processing b&w prints in the darkroom, I sometimes used sepia toner on them. This is the digital equivalent, and callas take to the treatment so well! Some b&w groups on RB don’t accept sepia, but most do, so I thought it would be OK for your group. Anyway, glad you like it. Callas are such wonderful flowers!
