Black and white is not an obvious choice for many for flower photography. I for one do like a good mono flower shot. It reduces the flower to its shape and textures which colour can often distract from.

You have an interesting composition here with the two daffodil heads placed side by side but one above the other. I really like the texture and shape which you have brought out so well. It lacks sharpness which may be in the image re-sizing for your upload. Always best to sharpen after re-sizing to ensure you have this right. I would also want to play around a little with the conversion using the colour channels to get the best out of the tonal range and add a little bit of oomph to the conversion.

Nonetheless an appealing image. What did you think of "trying out mono"? Do you see some future potential in exploring more black and white flower shots?

Regards
Paul

You've retained all the detail in the whites and some lovely tones.
Our competition judge last night advices using the gamma slider to add to tonal range.
I've seen some effective tulip images on site - see Dales Lass.

Although we all like to see flowers in colour, there is a lot to be said for flowers in black and white because it brings out shape and texture that we often overlook because we concentrate on the colour. So I've been concentrating on your composition, the crinkly trumpet edges and the petal textures, and your conversion works well for me.

What Pamela said is quite true, the B and W bringing out so much more detail and textures.
