Without color it's almost like a whole little world inside the poppy. I think I spied a flower fairie or two.

Woody said...

This is awesome! I think the color version would distract you from some of the amazing details in the flower.

I like this in black and white...such detail is revealed. This is really gorgeous.

Wow, so cool!

Clytie said...

And here I thought it was perfect in color!!! This is gorgeous!

RuneE said...

That was a very nice conversion. The basic structure of the flower comes forth much better.

They're like fingers all clasping together. Mono brings out the fragility of it.
