Nice one.  Odd looking plant; I had only heard of it because I've seen the name listed on things like "herbal" skin treatments and balms when I worked in Whole Foods ages ago.  I never knew what the plant looked like.

When you're in Photoshop on an RGB photo and taking it to grayscale, don't just do that. Go to Image/Adjust/Channel Mixer and click the "monochrome" box, then jack up the red and scale back green and blue accordingly. Sometimes I just straight-up turn off the G&B channels and go 100% Red to Grayscale. Sometimes I do Red Channel for the sky only, then mask off the foreground and convert it using more conventional method, just to get that killer sky.

Yes; that sounds like a good idea.  The software I use (Corel PaintShop Pro) has a choice of filters when you convert a color image to B&W using Photo Effects.  It's pretty handy - you can choose filter color options from a drop-down or move the cursor around in a sort of rainbow, color circle to get different mixes or percentages.  There is a Channel Mixer method which is similar to the one you described as well.  I shot that cloud photo with the camera set on "monochrome" and a red filter applied.  I also shot a similar one in color to see if I could replicate the camera settings affect with the software.  I haven't tried it yet but I imagine it could be close and have more options.

Thanks.  I was experimenting with a red filter.  Got some interesting shots with how it darkens the sky; like these odd-looking clouds:

Say hello to Veronica. She is a butterfly. Her family is very large and commonly seen in the Malibu area. She is a Variable Checkerspot (Euphydryas chalcedona). If you look closely you can see she sports a red mohawk hairstyle, a distinctive trait of her family. When she was young she was a spiky black caterpillar with red spots.


Well thanks for that info.
Love the mohawk!

Thanks guys! When it comes to chasing butterflies (and that's pretty much what it is I have to do to get these photos), lighting is all luck, heck, getting a butterfly in the shot is sometimes luck!
