the lighting on this is just exquisite.

This is one flower photo that does look good in black and white because there is enough texture to pull it off. Well done.

I love the delicate/pristine feel to this photo. You've done a good job of capturing the various shapes and textures.

nice lighting
the the left and bottom are a bit distracting

Very nice tonal range. The light in front of and behing the flower is a bit of a negative, IMO. There's enough going on in the flower to not need the stem and leaf bits.

Pretty. I like the use of the white flower.
06/04/2002 03:44:00 PM
Fine job holding detail across a wide tone range.

Very, very nice use of black and white to bring out the exotic curves and undulations of this flower. Faultless, to me :) 10!

Good lighting with contrasts, detail, almost transparency. Good work with a flower, usually more suitable for color.

nice lighting

Much of the image is dark and no visible, I would try lightening it up or cropping it out. I think there's too much of a shadow inside your subject (flower) as well.

great macro shoot , terrific use of DOF, the back ligthing is great

I wish a little more light had fallen on the tulip, then it would be perfect. -Annida
