Reminds me of a classic B&W movie, shot with an eye to shadows rather than color.

Thanks for the comments, all.

You have inspired me to do some more Black and White flower photos this year.

PS. These are not conversions, they are shot in monochromatic with a Nikon Coolpix 8400. Both were taken at the FDR Estate in Hyde Park, NY.
