I might use curves/layers to bring up some selected highlights. Nice composition.
I am a B&W junkie
thought it worked soft and grainy like it is.. bring up to many highlights and you loose some of that..
Tim - very nice. In my opinion, some subjects and lighting just beg for B&W. This is one of them. Probably 75% of my work is B&W, and I think others are starting to realize the drama that you can extract. I like it as is.
Work for me? In this case, yes!
I don't think there are many situations where B&W doesn't work, and this proves it!
I'm not a fan of B&W, but this one is nice, Tim. I agree that the less than full dynamic range gives added meaning to this image. I would however convert it to 8-bit black and white -- the minute residual traces of color in this 24-bit version bother me a little .
It works for me, Tim. Like the soft touch of the image. As Jeff suggested, may be some play with the curves on selective highlights to bring out the flower from the background but it's only a question of taste. Good use of DOF.
