Quite some time ago I photographed a bouquet of tulips. I took many photos and experimented with a lot of approaches. With this image I tried to produce a 'stylized' photo in which composition, form and tone were the most significant elements. The aperture wasn't 9.9 (PN does this all the time), but 8.0. Your comments are very welcome.

The lack of color makes shapes and textures better appreciated without distraction. Great black and white with all shades of gray, a nice job compliments Vincent, ciao Giangiorgio

Vincent, you succeeded hands down. The three elements mentioned produced a magnificent work of art. - - My best always, michael

Hi Vincent, I like the composition, and agree with Giangiorgio the B&W presentation strengthens a photo. Kind regards, Sandor

Vincent, I'm about to post for critique what I consider a fine art image. As always, your usual style of critiquing will be most appreciated. - - My best always, michael
