I wish you had cropped tighter of the subject and eliminated some of the foreground.

I am struggling with this photo sligthly. I'm not sure if this grain is intentional or not and I'm not sure why this photo is black and white? I would love to see what this looks like in color... = 6 - jmsetzler

Interesting effect to use the distortion of the glass to distort the flower. Nice job. (Did my monitor go dim, everything seems dark.....) Photo 7 Transparency 7 total 7 swash

your photo is very pixelated. i'm not sure whether that was an intent and you saved your file at half allowable size for that purpose, or not. if not, there are some tutorials on this site that help you save the files so that your photos aren't so pixelated. i'm also wondering why you went with b&w for this shot. as for the challenge, yes, you met it, there's transparency and some distortion. i guess more overall clarity and contrast (or even color) would've improved this shot for me. -- gr8photos (3)

Good job! Nicely laid out backdrop. The grain is an interesting effect. I would also like to see what this looks like in color, maybe with a softfocus filter?
