I like this in B&W. Though some will find this to graphic, I find it artistic. This is the start of all our lives, and all of them are like looking at the differences in the flowers they resemble.
Good use of the lighting and shadows. Interesting model setup and camera angle. All of it works very well. The conversion to B&W, to me, forces the viewer to concentrate more on the image content rather than all of the various colors and other aspects of a color image.
What was the inspiration for this image? Was it difficult to get exactly what you were working for?
