    Lovely shot!

    Might be tempted to clone out the little white spot where the light has hit the tip of a leaf though :)

    Lovely, very well done, very effective, beautiful colours and shades.

    I agree the spot just below the lower petals needs cloning out, but still a great shot.

    Nice work. :)

    I'd go for a square crop which would solve the stray light issue.

    Very nice shot, lovely and sharp. Nice detail in the petals.

    Well done Adrian - love it - good detail ;)

    And a great file size as well!

    Light and detail make this for me - agree about the leaf tip needing to be got shot of.
    You've chosen a v good specimen too. With flowers, they need to be physically perfect or have ragged character, IMHO; anything in between just looks messy.
    I'm working on some B+W plants and flowers at present (because I know how popular it is on here at the moment!)
    Like this though. :D

    I agree with all the comments - very striking against the black background. I like it!

    As Alec said, that's a perfect specimen. Almost looks artificial it's so flawless. I like the changing tone of the background as well - subtle. Was this shot using natural lighting?

    Thanks for all the feedback guys!

    The leaf (with the overexposed tip) has to go!

    I tried a square crop but prefer the present one.

    I also tried it in mono and post it here (for AlecM - I'm thinking about a mono flora panel; just thinking!)


    And the size is because there's only 2 colours really - yellow and black!

    Somehow, I can't help feeling that doing a mono conversion of the beautiful yellow flower is somehow missing the point... :) Though I agree there are some nice textures in the petals.

    When compared directly with the colour version - yes, the colour version wins hand's down. But as part of a mono panel of flora, focussing on the textures, structures and shapes, without the distraction of colour, then I think it is a different matter.

    The textures and lighting do indeed carry this as a mono study - but i Still prefer the colour version.

    I like them both - it makes you look at the flower in different ways - super!

    Excellent - much prefer this one. Really clean and clear petals!
