I was taking some macro shots in the backyard when I say this fly on the side of a flower pot, it really wasn’t the fly itself that interested me but the shadow he was casting.  I was working on it in post and decided to try it in black & white too, I immediatelyIMG_5167-Edit-2-Edit.jpgIMG_5167-Edit.jpg thought of Alfred Hitchcock for some reason when I seen it in B&W lol. I used my Canon 60D with my Tokina AT-X 100mm f/2.8 Pro D Macro Lens

I too like the B&W… I might try to photoshop some of the scratches on the pot out as it draws my eye away from the fly…

Very ominous looking in B&W.  
I’d keep the scratches, but lose the … whatever it is… at top right.
Decisions, decisions.

I prefer the color version. I like the pop of orange on the fly’s eyes agains blue/grey background. I would keep the scratches. Looks like from some horror movie with that bit shadow.

Color version of image looks much better than black and white because the shadow of fly clearly see on the floor.
