Some pics I took last year. practicing with the black and white setting in Aperture. I really like the da70...I need to take it out of the bag more.

A couple variations on the same set of flowers.

The first one is okay, but the second and third are just stunning! The contrast really accentuates the detail in the flowers, their texture and their feel.

Love the second one. It has such a lovely soft feel yet the detail is all there. Wonderful shot.
