I tried taking this to a black and white image. I wasn't sure I liked it, so I started adding hints of color back in, until I reached this point.
Though I do like the full color version as well.
I may revisit another photo from the set when the grays and whites of the cold winter season begin to feel unending, and I start to hear the faint call of the spring garden in my brain.
