That is a nice shot Mike....Im sure its rare to find a rose in full bloom in November, You have a great eye for detail.
Wow . In black and white I think immediately on a funeral. Still a very good executed picture. Would it be color you would be one of the many flower macro bloggers. Well done Micheal.
This shot in B&W is great. It makes it more artistic in many ways, rather than purely realistic. It does give it a sense of foreboding... it is beauty with a spiky darker edge. I can't really explain what I mean.. LOL.Really good image.
Has a really fine quality that reminds me of Edward Weston's work. Very impressive image.
