This one reminds me of a sea creature. I really like how the appears to be a haze at the base of the tentacles. I converted this to monochrome in PS.

Very cool! I love the white center and the textures surrounding it. Was the center actually red?? Yellow?

The center was actually an off/yellow white, and the flower was sorta blue. Thanks for your comments!

I like this conversion - makes me think sea anemone. You don't see a whole lot of B&W flowers, but this one is excellent! -/\/
