Good, Armand. I love black-and-white flower shots.

Thank you, this one was quite amenable to a b&w treatment.

Got this one just east of Yosemite during a backbacking trip.

Very nice, Matt. I think if you darkened the sky just a little more (just a little, though: it would be easy to over do it), you'd get better separation of the white trees.

That's true, but it wouldn't be easy to darken the sky properly, with all the air around and between the branches.

Would darkening the blue channel help? Would a polarizing filter help is this sort of situation? I am just asking out of interest in technique, not criticizing the image, which I like a lot.

You are right, both techniques should help - if the sky is blue enough or if you shot the scene at such an angle that the polarizer makes the sky darker.
Even so, all the branches and the space between them would create a challenge.

The bamboo is really nice Armand, although the focus seems off or something else is wrong. It could use a perfect sharp capture so the joints stand out as a separate pattern in the image.

I meant to respond to this a while back but I did darken the blue channel and it does look better. I'll probably print this at some point.
Thanks for the suggestion!
