I think you made a good choice converting this to bw. It adds interest. The lighting is perfect on the coiled part of the fiddlehead. The only suggestion would be to consider cropping from the top to just above the second leaf from the top. But, if you want to keep this in a standard ratio, then it is fine as is.   Posted: 08/04/2020 12:54:20

Yes, I see that the incomplete top leaf is a bit of a negative.   Posted: 08/04/2020 14:27:41

This is a beautiful sharp black and white image Such wonderful curves and texture
I also would either crop out or clone out the top leaf   Posted: 08/05/2020 23:44:26

Very interesting shot with nice sharpness. I like the b&w presentation and I especially like the lighting that provides a great feeling of depth.   Posted: 08/09/2020 13:14:30

I think this is a really interesting image and a great way to present the fiddle head. The composition works well and you it is in focus. I like the abstract quality as well.   Posted: 08/12/2020 11:27:10
