The title of this picture is Protean Black.
The original color version of this, Protean, was created a while ago. But lately I’ve been on a black and white variation kick, and though not all images work in black and white, I think this one is quite effective.
Most of my black and whites require extra tonal adjustment from the color versions because you don’t have color providing contrast between elements (it’s funny just how bad a straight desaturation can look). Bur for this one I couldn’t decide between a dark background or a completely different white one. Normally one just doesn’t work, or is obviously the better option. In this case both looked good, so I did both.
Protean White is the name of the version with the white background.
