High Key Flower

This photo was desaturated using a simulated green filter. Was shot on my patio under shade provided by white umbrella thanks to my daughter Hillary! Background is white paper in direct sunlight.

I think this is a great high-key shot as is...very nice balance of the tones such that all shades of white can be distinguished.

It's very nice, Paul. I could imagine (in a print, at least) going still lighter with the petals, but keeping all the texture. Well balanced composition. Keep exploring this technique; you have the eye to do fine things with flowers and high key!
