[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Dear friends, after a very long rain I saw this wonderful tulip, low lying in the grass in our garden. I felt sorry for this beautiful flower. But the damage was too much for it, such is life:-(
I captured it, full size and hope some of you will see that even on the last day it shows its beauty. Thank you for viewing at and for your critics

A sad story accompanied to a beautiful picture, Rose!
The description in your note is as wonderful as the shot from this dying beauty is!

The sharpness and POV are perfect and the black frame works very well for this shot. The green BG gives nice contrast to this wet tulip, bowing, and accepting the harsh times which it had to go through recently.

Schönes Wochenende wünsche ich Euch Beiden!

Liebe Grüße

Bonjour Rose,
Votre histoire histoire est jolie et triste puisque la nature est ainsi faite. J'aime le choix de la présentation et du cadre qui ne laisse que le sujet principal. Vous avez un très bon choix en laissant la tige dans votre composition, c'est tellement joli ces petites goutes d'eau.
Merci et bonne journée.

Hello Rose

I like the isolation effect used here. A wonderful capture. Nice work

Hello Rose

A nice use of light gives an artistic effect.
poetic composition.
rain can make it more beautiful flower or the kill, sad story, but it is the law of nature.
Fine framework and the details are excellent on the tulips drops.

Kind regards

dear Rose,
this tulip shows us another more beautiful figure different from that in fine day,
raindrops are tender and delicate light are elegant,
