Thanks for all the comments and scores everyone. Though I was hoping for a top 10 finish I'm still mighty happy with the personal best score. It's been a long time coming. It's taken 2 years to the month.

This is an awesome image. Love the neg space ...love the composition
Congrats on the high finish!

The composition here is simply perfect. It turns it from an ordinary (boring) flower picture, into a work of art. I love this. :)

Truly a simplistic shot.
Love the slight texture on the petals.

Simple, clean, beautiful. This has a very peaceful feeling innate to the simplicity. Very nice. 8.

Beautiful - so simple and clever that it is in b&w. Good job, whoever you are!

Nice and simple. The negative space works great with the flower. Cropped well as I think the center of the flower would have affected the shot in a non positive way. Good work.

nice composition, i can see green on the lower left handside which distracts a little from the white on black of the right hand side

Just gorgeous! 10

Simple, Zen and Beautiful. My only small crib is that the flower looks like artificially pressed to background (I might be grossly wrong). A little more lift would have added extra punch. I still like the picture and I hope it does well for you.8.

wonderful

Again I have said this before, the simplicity of the image is what made this one good for me . Great photo, nice detail. I gave it an 8, probably would have gone higher if there was a little bit more subject to keep my attention longer.

Mmmm... now that's zen. At first I didn't like that blue smudge you have going on there in the left corner, but the more I thought about it (meditated upon it, if you will,) the more I like it. It gives a suggestion of sunshine, of light on a far leaf.

Lovely.
