Nicely done. I tried B/W on some daffodil pics but couldn't make it work really. This is good though. Like it very much

Excellent composition with a good tonal range and definition.
Unusual subject for a Black and White, but this one works well.- well taken.
Not everything in life is Black & White, If only it were!
Kind Regards,

This was a tricky one to do and many images were deleted before I finally got one I thought worked well.

Thanks for all the kind comments, much appreciated.
Cliff.

Superb.

Well done for doing something different.

To me daffodils are about 'yellow' but the mono highlights other appealing qualities like the shape of the flowers and the stems.

Thanks Kris and Peter. The challenge to myself for this year is one flower image a month in mono which doesn't sound a lot I know but it is trickier than it looks (for me anyway). Bluebells next.......that should be fun

Thanks for all your comments.
Cliff.
