Great shot!

Very well composed and wonderful B&W tones, enough details in the dark areas as well as on the flowers!

Best regards Richard!

High Contrast Water Lillies The project was to take continous tones and turn it into a B&W photo. I added a Lightroom creative preset called "High Contrast". Please let me know what you think. I have really become interested - obsessed? ;- ) in capturing as much natural Florida in B & W as possible. Perhaps a Clyde Butcher influenced obsession? Thanks for your time.
