WOW M@ndy!

The hibiscus is superb! great texturing on the petals and buds.

And your work on the curves - did u use curves? - for the spiral is awesome. The black is black and white is white and I can feel textural details in the dark and bright areas.

How did you learn to do B&W like this?! GREAT! :)

I am loving these two pictures, although they are not really high-key. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for your comments (& sorry I posted more than 1 photo).

I have a better understanding of what pure HK should look like.

FYI: I followed the HK technique, but then re-introduced the original image to return detail in the darks.

Espion, I've replied via flickr. May be I should add the flower was butter-yellow white and the stair case walls were once white, so not much conversion was necessary!

Keep those comments coming!
