Evolving Structures

I hesitated quite a while what to do with this one. I, first, wanted to keep the colours, since I was sure I would get some decent and vivid results. At some point I (just for fun) tried desaturating the image and was immediately struck by the different structures: the many and soft leaves on top, the sharp and crisp lilies in the middle and the harsh and brutal concrete blocks on the bottom. Looks like I definitely should be training my eye more to get a better impression about the structures contained in my images...

Apart from desaturating the image, I also increased local contrasts quite a bit, in order to reveal all those leaves and the details in the concrete surface.
