Flowers come to our mind with colours but as they are so beautiful anyway nothing is lost in B&W. It's more like a stylised image. I love this onbe very much. JNC

Excellent shot and title! I personally am of the opinion that flowers should be photographed in glorious technicolour but there are exceptions and this is one of them. At first glance I thought it was a "white on white" shot. It's perfect.

Looks good in mono and often such images look better on the wall than a coloured version. Of course it depends on your decor but those with a modern minimalist style would likely love it.
PS I have uploaded a mod and forgot to say I added a stronger black stroke to it to give it more punch.

Works so well Chris ... tho i have to agreee with Dionne with the thicker stroke ..... that was all it needed to make it pop that little more .... but what a beauty!

Nice shot. But I think that all the petals should show their points in the frame, perhaps I am just a square...that is how I feel.
But nice tones in the leaves and stamens, but the stem could have been more pronounced.
Great B+W can see the standard of the shot, but I hope you can see my 'Point'...Chen.
