Good tonal range. Where was this shot? Could be my monitor, but the focus seems a little off in the centre. Superb! 10.

Beautiful shot. Nice choice of subject. I like your treatment of it, and the centered composition seems to really work well in this case. Good job.

Manages to use high contrast for impact, but still has tonal shades to keep the picture delicate...like a flower. 10

The flower really jumps out against your solid black background. Perhaps just a bit more highlights on the stem, but for me, a really good high contrast entry. Well done. :::applause:::

This is a flawless B/;W conversion. My hat's off to you! One of my favorites on the more conventional side of th challenge, though there are some striking images that reach further for their edgy effect that i also love. Very nice work and an 8 from me.

This is lovely. I like the detail and texture of the petals. The light and shadow play on them is great. This is simplicity at its best!!
