A tulip from the garden,taken with my fixed 50mm 1.8 lens.I think I still have to work with the focal distance, the front petal is a tad OOF,but I do like the results this lens gives.Now if I could just work out the correct DOF.

Hi Ronalds.

Very impressive tulp cature, the way the light illuminates the centre looks like there is a light source within the tulip. the pastel tones of the petals sits so well against the undergrowth. Have a cool day. TFS

Hi Ron,
A very sharp capture of this violet tulip with a glowing heart adorned with lovely lighting. A splendid contrast with the green grass and a perfect crop to let us enjoy this beautiful flower.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Ron,

Hard direct lighting sometimes looks good too as it does here. More problems with dark shadows & oe although In see none of that here. Wonderful colour saturation & nice use of a shallow dof to make the red fg tulip stand out. Tfs & have a great weekend!
