Hanging heads

While I'm preparing for my next major photo outing out of the country (a teaser --it's the most unusual place I've been to yet and requires lots of preparation!) it'll be more macro work of flowers and stuff around my area. These drying flowers are part of a local medicinal plant -- I don't know the English name -- shot with the intention of turning it into a monochrome image. This was converted to black-and-white, levels slightly adjusted and then slightly tinted to give an almost selenium toning effect. (For those born in the colour film and digital era, selenium toning was a treatment for black-and-white prints to make them last longer and also to give a pleasant tint to images).
