Hello everyone,
after the very interesting theme of 'white on white' yesterday, I wanted to celebrate colour today.

This is from the Eden Project.Masses of tulips growing in the Mediterranean Biome.All colours grouped closely together,but here I wanted to concentrate on this one variety.
Just added a little contrast, border and resized.
Thanks for looking.

Hi Jean, That's my favorite photo! Colors and a good perspective! I like the lighting on these bi-colored flowers from such a lovely high POV. Why not celebrate with color after yesterday's monocolored Theme!
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Jean
fabulous field of orange tulips. Wide range of tones. splendid daylight on the flowers that nicely open up like wine glasses.
fine natural composition and fitting frame.

> The complex flower is well recorded!
The vertical point of view works well
and the chosen DoF covers both flowers...
Lovely colour palette, good 3D feeling!

Hi Jean

Wonderful repetition of the orange & yellow tulips & a superb downward pov. Excellent saturation & tight framing with punchy light contrasts & good density. Tfs!

Hello dear Jean,

What a beautiful tulips and an excellent work!
Wonderful warm colors, very good lighting, contrast and sharpness.
Well done and very well framed.


Wow! Indeed! Let's celebrate the explosive colors! Awesome presentation of those tulips. Love the colors. Good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Such a colorful work and of course a treat for the eyes especially after Friday's theme, Jean :)

Good focus on these tulips with amazing light and contrasts within the scene.
The sharpness and clarity are well done, and colors are natural.
Nice job!

Hi Jean.

Wow. A bed of colour.
Love the angle you used here, so much light and colour on offer. The repetition grabs the eye, the backdrop of sutle green leaves adds much, finished off with a simple enhancing frame, very well taken Jean.

Have a good Bank Holiday, hope the weather is a bit kinder to you and that you are able to go out somewhere.

Stv :0))

Hi jean,
It is a riot of colors! I love your POV. Very eye-catching and something that brings a smile to one's face when you look at it.

It's perfect. Very good pov and very good manipulation of colors. TFS.
