well done! [we scoff at the rule of thirds, we do!]

I do not prefer the color. I very much prefer the black and white. The range of tones almost appear to have color, though I suspect it is indeed truly grayscale. To me it has texture, a soft glow. The color version doesn't do that for me. And I truly do not understand the score.

very nice

I think this would be more effective if we could see the shape of the subject better. I think I would like it in color as well. Flowers imho do better in color since they're admired for that, but if you're going to take away the color make sure to have some interesting lines or subject placement. A little dry.

delicate textures here - i would love to see how this one looked in color - but I can imagine the b/w really highlights the light on the blooms

I understand what you might have been trying to do with this picture, but I think that it would have been better in color than black and white. It is too hard to take pictures of flowers in Black and white because too often are the colors in the flower peadles too soft and hard to make out what the flower actually is. Good idea but I would stick to color with flower close ups, or any plant for that matter that is not the size of a small tree up.

composition seems awkward, does not follow the 'rule of thirds' nor does it break it in an interesting way
