    I guess simplicity rules sometimes. Very nicely isolated capture. Good job.

    Was this shot using a black/dark backdrop, or it is 'cut' out and placed on a black canvas in PS?

    Thanks all, I appreciate the comments.

    This flower was picked out by natural light against a dark background. I used a multiply layer to burn out the background detail and leave the flower as the only visible element. So there's no cutting out anything but it wasn't a set up shot either.

    It was actually shot outside in a dark corner in the grounds of Osgoode Hall in Toronto.

    Beautiful B&W! You're title made me smile because I too like to take shots of flowers but hardly ever know their names :-)

    I like how it seems to emerge from the shadow.

  • Chris

    Great light and background. Perfect in b&w!

  • ROB

    That is quite surprising it was shot outside...and not a setup. Perfect excecution in both the original shot and processing.

    So moody and beautiful. The soft composition with the dark slight taking over the flower does it for me.

    Great composition - Processing is great!

  • JD

    great work with dropping the background out ;) really looks like a flash and studio jobby

    wonderful textures too, although I find the water specs a bit of a cliche

    Well done. A careful conversion to B&W really can transform an image. I like a lot how it emerges slowly from the darkness.
