Oooo! This works well, very well in B&W. You've done a great job in converting it. My favorite is still the color version (not that you asked), but I bet this is going to place at least in the finalists, if not getting one of those coveted gold or silver tags. Well done.

This really is a magnificent shot Marvin. I think all has been said that could be said. I like how you can see the soft texture of the leaf in front and how the one in back resembles a wing making her look fairy-like. Really great.
