This was very different for me to shoot as I'm usually doing "colors". I learned alot from this challenge and really enjoyed it. It made me think about light and shadows and using them to create a mood instead of using bright colors. Thanks,I'll be doing more of this in the future.

I am not normally a big fan of flowers done in b&w, but this is lovely. I like your choice of duotoning, and also the composition. The dark area at the center of the flower seems to balance it well. I love the very feathery aspect of the flower, which lends itself well to this treatment. The lighting is probably the thing that really makes this shot for me, since it has produced a fairly good range of tone. Very nice.

One of my favourites this week. Good composition and the light sepia tone is perfect. So is focus and cropping. Perhaps a little harsch in the highlighted parts but not a big deal. Well done and good luck!

I do like the shade chosen for this. The focus on the flower may be a little too close, as the missing edges of petals is a little too obvious.

The interplay of light and shadow makes this lovely in B&W.

Wow I love the white texture of the flower. Maybe needs a tiny bit more midtone darkening but very good. 7.
