    I've been playing with isolating objects with flash this week and I was fairly happy with a few. I posted them in the Macro Section.

    This is one I shot tonight. No post other than the usual sharpen and conversion to B&W. I'm wondering about this B&W conversion. B&W is something that I struggle with sometime when it comes to how much contrast to push. This one had really unappealing colors, but I think it works well as a B&W conversion. C&C Welcomed and Appreciated.

    it works as a b/w. especially with the dark background. i like the contrast and sharpness.
    the lighting is well done. unfortunately some of the petals are cut off, if you crop it more it's not so much of a problem, as it is now it's disturbing.

    i like it too, as for the cut off petals the only one that seems to be drawing my eyes out the frame is the one on the bottom

    Thank you for the replies. I appreciate the comments. I've never been a fan of still life that fits comfortably in the frame. It just seems too static to me.

    i hear you, that's why i thought more cropping, so cutting of more of the petals rather that just a the tips, will work better here i believe.
