[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I really like shooting hibiscus. It is a flower voluptuous.
Occasionally I like also to try convert to black and white to see if the quality is maintained and experiment the various filters for BW that Photoshop offers.
The result obtained with the filter "Darker" was so good that I decided to keep and submit to you for consideration.
For comparison I offer the colored version, in which I have had good results in the suppression of BG.

Very well processed image. I like your suppression of the BG where the edges are very fine. A B/W is even better than the coloured one.

Hi Raimundo,
Nice job on this... Hibiscus are quite difficult to photograph. You've done well. Strong clarity and focus, nice tonal range. TFS Julie
