Astonishing clarity. The "dual yellows" work well. Good depth of field, nicely composed... a high vote from me. Best wishes,

Nothing that should obviously have color was turned black and white. As a consequence it is't immediately obvious that this even has selective color.

Cool! I think the flower's petals need a little more contrast, they're kind of an overal bland gray... but otherwise this is beautiful!

The desat works really well here, good focus, composition and dark background all add to it's appeal
