Beautiful capture, Su Sana. Love the flower details and use of B&W. #1766671

WOW! This is gorgeous, Su Sana! Beautiful details...I especially like just the edge of the petals showing on most with just a bit more detail on one! Wonderful processing! #11917493

Thanks, Leslie & Teresa!! Teresa, yes, I had two choices, either make all petals black or make them greyish white and I went for the black. Then I realized that petals were covered in thick blanket of darkness so I worked on the edges of the petals and exposed a bit more on the top petal. I'm happy you both liked it. #11917496
