I love these B&W shots of the flowers. They look more delicate and very priceless :)
Have a good week ahead.
My flowers here & here

Oh my, these are gorgeous. Black and white shots do add an elegant quality to a photo. Makes me want to try some myself. Great job!

Beautiful!
Though I have to admit, that I would like to see them in color, too! ;)
Cheers, Klaus

I love the effects of the black and white on these flowers - makes the petals seem even softer.

Camelias are one of my favorites. Beautiful in B&W!

Paz said...

I love that you've photographed this in B&W. Brings out the beauty even more. ;-)

Hi there! These are absolutely lovely b/w closeups. I love to photograph nature.
I'll have to check out the rules to see if flowers that are not in bloom in my area can be used, meaning past photos?

It's wonderful to have found another photography site. I'm here from Carletta's site, I think. (I lost track of which blogs I clicked on.) :)

Carletta said...

I wouldn't have thought I would; but I like these in B&W.
Lovely!

What a big surprise to see these beautiful flowers in black and white. Pretty!

T and S said...

The B/W images clearly brings out the textures. The sheer power of color in this flowers would have distracted the viewer from the textures...nicely done...Thomas

June said...

T&S beat me to the punch...that they have no color lets the textures and form stand out...something good for me to remember!

John Theberge said...

Great shots, they almost look like they were done with infrared.

I especially like the rose of this series 2sweetnsaxy.

T: I agree with Klaus, the shapes are nice but let's see some color.

Aisha said...

Great flower shots! They're really beautiful even with just black and white, how much more if they're colored?

Wren said...

I'm surprised at how clearly the beauty and essence of the flowers comes through in the b&w photos. I wouldn't have expected that. Congratulations on lovely photos.
