Nice light and shadows here. Might look good as a B&W too.

I 'preciate that, MA. Yeah, I have it in B&W.

I find that this scene (aside from the lovely flower) as a whole is dark for me. Might actually work better in BW because of this.

Oh, its dark alright. I can't help it, I'm just not satisfied until they are a little darker than most would prefer. Centered weighted off the flower and -1EV makes it easy for me to knock the background down with levels and/or curves. Underexposed gives me the saturation I like most in camera.

I like the sharpness and the vibrant colors here. The dark doesn't really bother me.

Nicely done, Barefoot. I tend to do the same thing with many of my flower shots-- underexposing the background and then taking it down a notch or two from there to just about black it out.
