Hello, I just came home from a walk, and I saw this tulip in our neighbour´s garden which is not opened, because it is cold and windy outside. I think it looks very interesting because of its two colours.There are still little raindrops to see on its petals.
I wish you a good week and thank you for your comments.

Wow, what a wonderful macro capture today you are sharing with us, Rose!

I love the harmony of colors here, shown with razor-sharp focus, perfect sharpness, great clarity and above all, an apatizing BG which gives this flower a 3-D look. Marvelous natural colors also make this work so pleasing to enjoy.

Well done!

Liebe Grüße,

Hello Sela
Wonderful tulip ready for blooming. Dark BG enhances visual impact

Hi Rose,
A wonderful closed tulip with nice droplets and beautiful colors.
A very sharp macro with an interesting POV.
Good lighting and a wonderful dark vignette to boost more the gorgeous flower.
Well done, very neat work!

Ciao Sela

This is a fine macro shot where the soft light
really makes the subject stand out!
Well exposed in the bright parts,
and the flower is nicely isolated from the back...
This is absolutely a very nice picture.
Sharpness and clarity are very nice.
Very well done,

Best regards,

schoen ddas Foto zu sehen

Hallo Rose,
What an amazing macro shot with superb colours and sharpness.TFS.
Gefallt mir sehr gut!!
Herzliche grüsse,


Hallo Rose,
das Wetter war heute so mieß, dass ich die Kamera gar nicht erst mitgenommen habe. Wenns wieder schön ist, sind die meisten Blüten wahrscheinlich schon perdu. Carpe diem - den heutigen tag hast du jedenfalls optimal genutzt. Das Licht hier ist extraklasse.
Tulpen find ich normalerweise totlangweilig aber diese hier ist echt schön anzusehen, v.a. mit dem genial unscharfen Hintergrund. Klasse gemacht.

Hi Sela!
Wonderful image of tulip.
Light and colours are marvellous. Excellent POV and shallow DOF. Nice water drops among the petals.
Great sharpness and details. Perfect format and presentation. Very well done my friend.
Ciao! vanda
How are you! I hope that your eyes are OK now :)

Hi Rose ,
Love this Tulip with superb sharpness and lovely framing,the POV and vertical framing is well suited in this composition,the black vignetting gives a prominent look to your lovely tulip,the sharpness and exposure are well accurate,a little issue of darkness under the tulip I mean the branch if it were more visible would given a DOF my friend,however a lovely fresh and tulip presentation my friend.
Best Regards
