This is great. I love how it looks somehow very traditional, but also very quirky and bizarre in a way. Great pic, I'd happily hang it on my wall.

Dulcie,
Black and white gives me an entirely new way of looking at this - I love your perspective and discerning eye. Thank you!

I would like to see a hint of color in the tulips and leaving the rest B&W. But it is a fun composition!!

This is still one of my favorite photos I've seen on aminus3. I would actually really like to have a copy of this for my wall. I just think it is so quirky and awesome. Would you consider selling a print?
