Hear me

A low key black and white photograph of an early spring three petal flower. Stark contrast and a center focus on the pistils mark the picture.
Hear me — 100mm | f/4 | ISO 250 | EXP 1/400

Update: Thanks to @dpalamino from Twitter I’ve learned this flower is a crocus.

Here’s another shot from yesterday’s brief photo session. Bonus points if anyone can identify this flower for me.

Onward with the black and white binge—I knew straight away I’d at least have to give this a look sans color. To that end, I needed this image to be dark. Dark with strong contrast to render well defined edges.The lines marking the three petals draw the eye inward toward the center bouquet of pistils. There, floating, the eye hangs with the image gradually letting you pull back out.
