A gorgeous image. The black and white is beautiful! I love hosta leaves. They are so elegant when they are new in the spring and throughout the summer. I love looking at mine.

I like the patterns in those hosta leaves. They really pop out in the black and white.

very nice close-up of this plant (the same one featured june 3?) it works very well in monochrome, and your choice of fairly low contrast adds a delicacy that is not visible in the color image.
