    A bit late for posting flower pics, but the flowers in my backyard are just starting to bloom now. Comments and suggestions welcomed. Thanks for looking.

    Great tones in the second shot, I bet it would be killier in black and white. Nice work.

    Thanks for the nice comments.

    I've been thinking of practicing some black and white conversions, but I'm not sure of an effective method, anybody know of a good tutorial?

    Why do you say it is "too late for flower photos"? In my eyes, it can never be too late for flowers. And in our garden many flowers only now begin to blossom. Took tons of photos of my irises these days (but am unsure about whether to post them here or not - since they are "only more flowers"............ :roll: )

    I guess it's never too late for flowers, but so many flower photos have already been posted this spring on this board.

    It`s because spring finally brings back all those colours, and when they are back, we can`t keep our itching hands still.... ;)

    Since you seem to know all your flowers by name, would you say that this one here is a columbine, too? It grows in the way of a weed in amongst my lilies-of-the-valley but I thought "hey, what a very pretty weed" and took its picture (itching fingers, you see?), but I did not know until now what "my pretty weed" was. Is it a columbine, what would you say (and sorry for thus "hijacking" your thread, it's just that the question is coming to me NOW and HERE):
