  1. Azaleas are one of the wonders of spring Amanda. I think the color version here is the better of the two. But the B&W could be. The highlights are blown out. If you could find another way to convert. Using a complimentary color filter will darken the red tones. With some creative play, the monochrome version could easily become the stronger. Your composition is a good one and you have enough data to work with.

    Try using a mix of the blue and green channels with very little if any red.
