“Grape Hyacinth Revisited”

“Grape Hyacith”

“Because you don’t notice the light without a bit of shadow. Everything has both dark and light. You have to play with it till you get it exactly right.”
― Libba Bray

A few days ago, I posted an image of grape hyacinth with a white background, something a bit new to me, since I really enjoy the dramatic look of the black background. At the time, I also offered to publish the same image with the black background to compare. Keep in mind, nothing else changed except the background and a slight edit to remove the flower pot, which I found distracting on this version. It’s pretty astounding the different effect a background can have.

For reference, here’s the link to the original post. “Grape Hyacinth”

    I prefer the look of the muscari against the black background. It might be interesting to try a grey or neutral background, perhaps even a texture, if you’re still in the experimental mode!
