Ghostly Flower

What happens when you desaturate and fade a photo which already has little color in it? The above flower is one possible example. The original photo, taken with the iPhone, was of a white flower and without a visible background. I then sent the photo through the MonoPhix iPhone photography app to desaturate what little color existed, add vignetting, and add grain for texture.

Usually the images I create with MonoPhix end up looking much darker; here, though, the final overall effect was to make the image look lighter. That's despite the dark vignetting, too. Some iPhone photography apps allow you to apply white vignetting as well, but I didn't find that that effect worked so well on this photograph.

In fact, I find that the final combination of effects to create an almost ghostly effect, and the darker edges from the dark vignetting probably continues to this far more than white vignetting would. I haven't gotten this sort of effect out any other iPhone photos I've edited with MonoPhix.

The flower in this photograph is a white Dahlia in the Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Native Mexico, Central America, and Colombia, Dahlias were once cultivated by the Aztecs for food, religious ceremonies, and decorations.
