A tulip in white. It was white to start with, hence the BW conversion.

Thank you! I have these arty moments occasionally, but they soon pass if I lie down in a dark room Grin

I have a fondness for mono flowers, they have a cool, remote quality, Garbo-esque, particularly when the lines are simple and clean as here. (Doesn't work nearly as well with 'frilly' flowers). The central position of the stalk is interesting, my first instinct was that I would place the flower a little bit more on a diagonal, and crop to square to enhance the abstract aspect, as an alternative view; this composition is growing on me now. But you may not be interested in that meandering.

Mono flowers are, I find, very difficult to do, because a lot of them don't actually look all that good in mono. You tend to think flower=colour like you think Med holiday resort=colour. Yes, I often would do more of a diagonal as you say, and the square format is one of my favourites. Thank you for commenting.

I like the subtle lighting of this shot, the soft detail as opposed to the hard detail some would tend to choose! which is often a mistake! nice one like it!, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
