Frank, I saw the way the stem was leaning (almost away from sun shining on it). I grabbed my camera, and took some pics from various angles. This one turned out the best. I thought the mood would be better represented in B&W. After PP the image, I didn't like how it looked in color, so I converted it to B&W to capture the mood a little better.Flew said:Very unique shot Nick. To me it has a very brooding, almost anxious mood, like something out of a Poe story. I think this is due to both the B&W treatment, and the down-turned blossom on the top of the flower. I'm curious as to whether this is the effect that you intended to convey.
