Clearly, a very DNMC photo. The description implicitly states that your photo was to be in B&W. This happens to be the first 1 I've ever given out. Congratulations :)

DNMC photo needs to be in Black and White for this challenge.

I love this picture but could not give it the score it deserves in this challenge.

Its a nice photo, but this challenge said that the photo MUST be black and white, with no colour allowed. I would have attempted to have a slightly greater depth of field, as even parts of the main flower are soft because of the depth, while the center is very sharp.

Oops! DNMC! Really nice photo, though, it's a shame.
09/25/2008 01:39:46 PM
ok so I see the white, wheres the black?
Maybe HDR it and then desaturate.
But nice composition and lighting

obviously not black and white
09/24/2008 10:29:56 PM
no color
09/24/2008 07:42:26 PM
This is NOT black and white.. it has COLOR components it it. Please go back and read the description again, it is simple, and straighforward, and says 'take a black and white image'.

Pretty picture otherwise. I would have changed the lighting a bit... and cropped in more on the inner loops.

Lovely, but not black and white

I'm sure you've heard it several times now ... "photo MUST be in black and white" ... look like nice flowers though!
09/24/2008 11:57:51 AM
Description of challenge: "The final photo MUST be in black and white (and the grays in between)."
I've gotta vote you lower because of the color. Bummer... I'm sorry. :(

The full details of the challenge (which I'm sure have been quoted to you by now) specify a black and white photograph. That said, this is a good shot - lovely softness to the blooms. Has just a touch of blue to it - not sure if that's white balance or the environment at the time you shot it.
