Ilike the way you pushed the lighting threshold to the limit.

This is a beautiful image--well composed and well seen. It is a bit dark--not the shadows, which are "lovely, dark, and deep", but on the flower petals: a bit more brightness could make this strong image really sing. On my monitor, which tends to be too bright already, these petals fall in the "middle grey" range, and a zone or two brighter there would be helpful--but don't lose that wonderful texture in them.

There is also a little bright bit at the leaf/stem joint that could do with a quick "heal" out.

Or, ignore me completely! It is your image & vision.

So, back to the main point: I really like this image! 7

Really dark. I am not sure if this was intentional, or a result of a misadjusted monitor.

not enough contrast in my opinion.

Lovely low key b/w image. Not a fan of tulips, but this image makes me think twice. Very nice.

Lighting is weak but everything else is working for you. Try some different lights with covers or without.

Good idea, but I'd like to see some more light on the tulip.

Oh, a bit too dark for me, seems way underexposed. Nice curves of the tulip though.
