    Yes I agree with you Elliott. Pity about all the others!

    well i'm baffled. i sincerely thought this would do well. i had this in second spot. my voting criteria was based on what i thought was good technically and what i thought would print well, sell well, or in general have a life outside of 'panachallenge'. i hope you feel that way about your entry.

(and thanks for the comment and vote you left for mine... very much appreciated)

    fc mentioned water drop(s) A lot of people use a mister and it can produce a nice effect. I prefer to dip my fingers in water and then flick them at the flower. It gives large drops without soaking all the plant.

    It's amazing how much texture shows up in the B&W treatment.

    i've voted now... and have this in number two spot. i think it will stay there. really nice treatment that has that georgia o'keeffe feeling to it. i'm not big on flower shots but this one is good and you should print and frame it.

    forkcandles: I thought about it. Where would you have put it? That was my problem.

Thank you all for your comments.

    Very beautiful scale of greys, great textures and graceful shapes. Lovely flower shot!

    A nice crop gives this photo dramatic interest.

    I think shooting flowers in B&W is a courageous thing to do. I prefer this with the bottom cropped off till it's nearly square but the crop around the flower is spot on. Terrific textures and lighting. Well done.
