This fabulous B & W hushed, intimate as a corollary of small light in the night.

harry from United States

Lovely. Soft and romatic. I like the edgses you have been using lately - are they from a package?

18 Mar 2011 5:17pm

@harry: They actually are in Nik's Silver Efex 2. When you apply them, you have to use the Luminosity blend mode for color.

flowers in monochrome tend to be problematic, but this image is very effective and convincing! i'd be hard put to choose bw mono and colour!

Marleen from Doesburg, Netherlands

It's a beautiful image, but after our long and 'monochrome' winter my favourite is the colored version;-)

@Marleen: understood. it's pouring rain here today
