The composition of #5 is very, very nice Fons.

 

The others are nice as well, but not to the level of #5, although #2 is a good 2nd.

I agree with Hans ... #5 is an outstanding composition ... It is a flower shot that does not need colours ... very nice!


Never mind the words ... just hum along and keep on going...

I like the 1st one - it is really nice - I would have preferred you tho not to have cut off the tips of the top buds.

Ditto what Elsa said, but I know how difficult it is to get flower photography right, but for a flower photo I don't see the point of No 5 B/W? but thats just me who ain't a fan of B/W.  :D

A nice series; not so keen on #1 but the others are fine, esp. #3 and #5.

Yes, for #5.

I am usually a color guy, but I love how those peony flowers progress in development
