Oh wow....I cant believe I never commented on this shot.

I guess because we spoke about it before you know my views but let me reiterate, this is beautiful

I love the foreground sharpness and the gentle bokeh of the blooms in the background

As ever, your black and white conversion is stunning, such strong tonal ranges

In my personal top ten in this challenge. Lovely work. And for someone who wasn't going to be very active, you sure enter a lot of challenges - what are you doing on Team Zombie anyway? :-)

Grrr I meant to comment on this one during the challenge. I thought this was excellent. I love the black and white tones and the contrast and focus on that main petal. The bokeh is quite wonderful too.

Nice use of b/w. Love the detail on the flower...I think I'd crop more off the top and on the lefthand side so the eye stays on the flower..jmho.

I'm not sure the b/w works with me for this particular shot. I wonder what the color version looks like. It is good, just not for me personally.
