    Yes, the singled-out one is the best version of all! Looks really really nice!

    that first one is really nice, but I would just suggest that you put the stem back in, cause it looks a little awkward without a stem.

    Yep, I like the first one, and agree with Omeletteman that you should put the stem back in.

    Very nice. Another vote for the stem or....crop up to the bottom of the flower.

    Hmmm.. I had trouble with the stem, b/c as soon as I switched it over to b&w it became too dark. I couldnt even differentiate it from the black background, and it looked a bit too weird to lighten the stem... Feel free to play with it if you like; I might mess with the stem again tomorro.

    Thanks for the comments! I really appreciate all of your help :)

    Messed some more with the stem today, and I went two routes with this one... one adding a slightly lighter stem that just seems to blend into the background, and also darkening the bottom so that it seems to just fade to black.
    Critiques please!

    Version #1 (before changes)

    Version #2 (lightened stem)

    Thanks for looking!

    i really like it floating, well done for getting that from the original, if i were to change anything it would be to have a little moe texture in the strong highlight but there is still loads of detail in it
