A very pleasant image almost like a pen and ink sketch. Do you think that the blacks ought to be a bit darker to accentuate a bit of 3D?

Norman,
I want the image to be high key, so that the flower petals bleed into the background, strangely i think my colour version works a little better,

Alan

Super image, delicate and striking but the dark leafs on the right stem stop me giving top marks, remove them and its 10/10
