This would have been a beautiful shot, but the blacks don't have any detail. It's definately a nice change from all the green peas and so far it's the only one that's driven me to make a comment. Very pretty.. just needs better lighting.

wow black pea pods neato. i like the color of the flower it is quite lovely

I love the apparent transparency of the flowers, but I feel that the stem and leaf or pod (?) should be a little less dark.

I love the elegant simplicity of this image. I love the colour (it isn't green!) and I love how the dark pod still shows texture and interest.
