Another image from the garden, the flower buds and leaves just breaking out on my Blueberry bush, hand held again. Played with in LR4 then Silver Efex Pro 2, wanted as pure as possible just Black and White, think it will be a Marmite image.

As it happens, I like Marmite.Smile
Like this, too. Good to see someone experimenting with something different.
One tiny thing...that fingertip of white beside the flower head, top centre..I'd clone that out to leave the clean rim of the bloom.
As a final action in SEf. I would remove the border and substitute it with a discreet thin white line, 2 or 3 pixels wide...just my thoughts.

I like Marmite. With sliced tomato on granary bread. Sorry, I digress, any reference to food does that to me...
I like this too. All about light, that is after all what it's all about. Photography - writing with light. But light is nothing without shadow, and I particularly like the way the imagination has to fill in the gaps.

I think your processing has made this more abstract, leaving the viewer to ponder -
'Is that what I think it is or is it something else?'.
Sorry to be at odds with all the previous comments, but I think it's too dark. The shadow areas are completely blocked out and devoid of any detail. I find it difficult to look at.
After downloading and experimenting with the image, to absolutely no avail, I've decided Cliff applied Threshold to it, rendering it in absolute Blacks and Whites. Doesn't work for me. Sorry Cliff. Sad
