Soft and detailed; good B&W. The lone petal really adds to the composition. Hopefully you don't get DNMC for it.

While not the most interesting composition of all the submissions, I've rated this image particularly highly based on its sheer technical brilliance: nice interplay of light and dark, excellent depth of field and sharp without having been brutally oversharpened in post-processing
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/03/2007 09:51:41 PM
Very nice - certainly outstanding among the flower shots (including mine =). The composition of the two flowers and petal is perfect, while the rich monotone compliments the rustic wood background.
