Macro Gerberra #bwphotoproject

For those of you that follow me on Instagram you'll know that I love a flower photo or two so it'll be no surprise that my B&W photo for this week is of a flower. 

We've started having fresh flowers in our house pretty much on a weekly basis, the reason is mainly so I can take endless photos of them and they also make the house look pretty. The other day we picked up a bouquet of gerberras which were a bargain price of £2. The first thing before putting them in a vase is to photo them. 

Instead of the usual flower photos I tried my hand at a little macro and I quite like the way this has come out. I think the fact that it's in B&W helps bring the details out. Below is what the original looked like.  

Which one do you prefer?
