    the center of the flower is intentionally dark.

    I like the lighting, but a bit of detail in the dark center would add a lot.

    I like the monochrome colouration, but something about the composition makes the flower appear very heavy and bulky, not 'beautiful' in a classic sense.

    thanks for the feedback, Rere. I took out the detail in the center intentionally, but your opinion is valued!

    i think i was in a very dreary mood when i edited this. i like that it looks dead, at least, i get a very "dead" feeling when i look at it. and im very happy with it.
    thanks for the feedback, alex!

    I love the texture in the petals, you can almost reach into the screen and touch them.

    Colour? Meh... I really like B&W flower shots!!! I find that you can really gain texture and great tones in flowers even without the colour! (Not that I don't like colour flower photos sometimes too!!) :O)

    In this shot, I really love the texture and the lighting is nice too...maybe it's a personal thing, but like someone else said--I'd like to see a little more detail in the centre!

    Nice! :O)

    the colours and sharpness are both lovely. however like alex b said, theres something about the crop, i think its too tight (cutting off a few of the petals). just my opinion.
