Does this work?

I took this shot, and wanted to see how well it would stand out with the saturation turned off for the background. I'm undecided.

Also works for me, the flower has enough different hues. I usually don't like this effect when it results in just a spot of the same color against a background.

What about a 50% desaturation instead of goind b&w for the background?
