Hi all and hope are well! Somthing a little different as inspired by so many on the conversion from color to b&w\sepia with flowers as it gives the flower a nice feel. Will post the color version later in the week! hope you like!

Tony, this works beautifully -- the shadow and light combine with the tones to bring out the detail of the gerbera. I really like how it almost seems to be floating in midair, too!
