Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge

I’m sharing some macro photos of flowers that I made with an iPhone 5 using Camera+ app, while being at the reception of my yoga school.

I hope you like them as much as I do. I used a black and white filter for each of the photos to present an additional option. Please tell me which one you like the best, and also if you like the composition.




I am joining Lens and Pens by Sally, who hosts each Monday the Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge.

The schedule theme for this week’s challenge is: Macro

    1. It is indeed. From the instructors to the receptionists, every one is always friendly, relaxed and helpful. It must be heaven…lol.
      I made the photos with the help of the receptionist, as I needed to move the vase of flowers and knell down…actually was quite funny as other people started helping too.

  1. I prefer the b/w version for the first image as it is a little washed out at the edges and the b/w turns that into a creamier bokeh. For the other pictures, I like the colors very much and they highlight the structure of the petals very nicely.


  2. What gorgeous flowers! They are stunning. I hope you got to take them home 🙂
    Actually they all look great in colour and in black and white. Those last two shots of the orange flower though are stunning in mono. Composition of those two especially enhances the capture. Super fresh and fabulous bouquet of images x.


          1. It’s getting hard to fit it in these days. And I have to actually apply some thought!! It’s not in my reader so I will open my computer and read it after I make more coffee x.


  3. Lucile, you successfully show the flowers (I think peony.) with all their delicacy. Each composition shows the joyous design that gives pause for nature’s majesty. While I think that color suits them best, a few are as enticing in monochrome (5 and 6). Happy Photo Challenge.

  4. The first photo I love the most I think, with the delicate color in the middle of the flower. I also like the petals in #2400, and the way they drape almost like a dress. I definitely like the color better than black and white.

  5. Beautiful! My favorites are the first pair and the third pair, both color and black and white, although the black and whites show off the contrast and subtle value changes nicely.
    I particularly like the composition of the third pair; the way the petals fold in on themselves 🙂


  6. Such lovely close-ups, Lucile. My Android tends to whimp out when I get too close!! :/ I do love the colour shots, but in the second black and white, the flower looks so silky and delicate.


    1. Thank you very much, gfchopstix.
      I used an app instead of the camera of my iPhone. I’m it works with android as well. The name is camera plus, and there you can shoot macro too.


  7. Lucile, you captured some beautiful images of gorgeous flowers. I like the first set and of those two, I prefer the color. While the B&W shows off the shapes, the color is such a part of flowers that I find it almost always more appealing. That doesn’t take away from your composition, which is excellent.



  8. I think I prefer the colour versions. Because they’re of flowers, they seem to have more vibrancy in colour. Beautiful shots, by the way. 🙂


What do you think? I'd love to hear it all.
