    Are 'dylbert' and 'dylan traynor' the same person? (If not, has 'dylan traynor' authorised the use of this image here?)

    I understand the use of monochrome for some subjects, but suspect that daffodils deserve colour.

    I think mono is fine for something you know so well, but point is to reduce it to shapes. For me that side-on one knackers any effect from the differential focus. Without that, it works.

    Yes I am "dylbert" and "dylan traynor".

    B&W film again? That is old-school charming, smacking of hazy spring days long ago* The only nit I'd pick is the dark spot along the bottom edge, once seen never unseen.

    First thoughts was I really like it soft and gentle not normally a fan of B & W as well . However I couldn't agree more with Mike the side on flower distracts and needs to go .

    I think two possible crops appeal:

    Think first has more going for it, despite the clipped left one.

    Much prefer the first, I like the two daffodils to the right of the main one, rather than just the one in the second crop.

    I asked because a few weeks ago somebody asked about the ethics of uploading a picture taken by somebody else.
    Are both names 'avatars', or is one real?
