    Thank you all.
@babysister,
Monochrome is one of the Alex choices. Flowers not bright, facing downwards&sideways is like mourning, subtle and mostly dark photo represent condolence.
@Stevebee, I sharpened the photo, increased the contrast that is why it appears sharp. I honestly mentioned it in PP, but PP seems to be not displayed for all photos during voting in this challenge.
In general, in all flowers the color patterns in petals are fuzzy and not sharp. Stamen and stigma are sharp.

    Very nice B&W. Like the contrast and composition, esp. how the left bunch of flowers seems to curl around the right.

    Well-composed and framed. Very sharp and contrasty. Interesting detail in the petals. Good background.

    Love the detail and texture. A fitting tribute, harkening to Alex's love of black and white photos.
