Wow, it looks like an old photo from the 1800s - beautiful!

This is a beautiful image, although because of the bright colours of the lady bird, I would suggest that it would look better with colour.
Nature contains so many vivid colours, that's why it's always best to capture that beauty.

Color is too easy - too many people take pictures with color for the sake of color. Photography is about light. Fine photographers make images about light rather than about color, primarily. If a photographer chooses to explore monochrome you should not presume to say color would be better- would you tell a painter what color or style to use?

Especially given the fact that you have posted most of your work so far in b&w, how can you say "it's always best" to shoot any subject in color?

This image creates mystery and interest for a subject that is often boring- just another close-up color ladybug picture would not hold my attention for one second. Perhaps you should hesitate a little before making superficial comments.

Hope I didn't offend, but this issue is a pet peeve. Welcome to dA - sincerely. I hope you get a lot out of it.

Colour is too easy? Photography is all about light?
Considering that I did a Photography course, I learnt that light is an important part of photography, it's not all about light.
That's only one element.
I said my personal opinion since the lady bug contains many great textures and colours that I think would look appealing as a colour image.
And yes, I am aware that most of my images are black and white.
Why did I chose that style? Because of my concept in those images.

Actually what you said, that I reacted to was "Nature contains so many vivid colours, that's why it's always best to capture that beauty." (Emphasis mine).

I 1) graduated from a (two year, professional) photo school;
2) have sold a lot of my photography for publication;
3) taught photography;
4) have really thought about the art of it for decades.

Oh. You did a Photography course. My, my. Guess I better pack up my opinion and f-off.
Zen koan: What is a photograph without light?

Wow, okay great. I may not have sold any of my work but okay,
it's great that you like to mention that, and great,
I'm glad that you taught Photography, congrats.
Like I said, it's my opinion.
The first comment that I said was only my opinion and my experience.
Every experience is different. And in all honesty I am a little hurt about the way you've explained some things.
No need for sarcasm.
