Quite an intriguing arrangement. Shows off the B&W medium very well.

Love the sublte/rim lighting and arrangement of the flowers, the wilting process/blur adds to the picture IMHO. Like the amount of negative space as well. well conceived and executed Peter - TFS

Thank you for your comments. The rim light was created by the long exposure, long enough to light the subject
from both sides. I took three photos that day and this was the last. The first two look static and boring. The
wilting flower gave this image a little needed tension
