    The satin-like sheen on the blossom is awesome and the black on black grew on me. The shadow on the stem and shoot disturb me though. Had that been eliminated, it would have boosted this entry in my mind. Still in my favs!

    Kudos fro trying something different however I think it gives the flower an artificial feeling.

    Did well with the Blacks here maybe too much black though, just seams a little like a plastic flower.

    First Impression - 3/5
Contrast - 4/5
Composition - 4/5
Tone / Texture - 4/5

Good example of Low Key photography, show off the texture on the petals beautifully.

    in my favourites but would be higher without the two leaves below i would have cut them back as the stalk would be better

    I think you needed a white background for the tulip to stand out. This blends in too much with the black background and it could pop off white.
