    I was walking along a path in the woods, and a small patch of bright pink caught the corner of my eye. I had to get down very low to see a small flower tucked away under some brush. I too the pic in B&W, and I really like the way it came out.
    I left a lot of the brush in the pic to try and show what was surrounding the small flower. Do you think the pic looks too busy with all of the other plants?

    The flower is interesting ... but it is getting lost in the shot.

    That was my concern with this pic.

    The picture is a bit busy, as mentioned.

    Does the pink really stand out in color?

    Seems like if it was the color that caught your attention, that the image should be color here... no?

    I was shooting some B&W pics at the time, and thought it looked interesting in B&W. I'll try a color version as well and see how it looks.

    Alright. Here is a color version of the same pic. I think I prefer it in color. What do you think?

    The color version looks better, but the flower looks a tad soft. Try sharpening it a tad.

    The problem with shooting and posting flowers is that there are so many out there, that you need to make sure it pops to make it stand out. All in all, I like the effort and idea.

    Its Black And White Dude. Black and White is about detail contrast and lighting.

    I think the color version is better, and I agree with some of the others about cropping it a little.
