This is the same white / red tulip I posted few days ago.. but you can see it is almost past its prime (or should I say it is?)

I took this photo today in my Kitchen .... no flash the light is the dim light from my kitchen door.. today was another gray sunless day... the BG is a wall in this room... used a tripod

after upload... I did crop just a little on the right.. the BG had some noise so I selected that and tried to use neat image.. that did not work so well so still with bg selected I added just a little blur in filters... I also had to (tried to) clone out a black line ... increased sharpness lightened a little and off to tl land.. :)

have a wonderful Saturday/Sunday and remember to smile at the little things in life......

Hi Tricia,

Almost gone was a good thing for you, now you had a great unobstructed view inside!

Lovely photo.
Smiling will be no problem ^-^.


Nice shot here Tricia! We started off gray and cold, but broke into this incredible day! Sunny, about 70 degrees! I've been out working in my yard! This is a really nice colorful shot!

Even past its prime Tricia still a beautiful flower. Nicely composed and your PP work has further enhanced its beauty. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Chicago Peace’...touch wood the PC is now functioning normally. Somehow for some reason the internet card was disabled, at the same time whatever caused that it alos fried my floppy drive. The drive has been removed and replaced with a thumb drive.

Hi Tricia,
Excellent, very unique and I love tulips--- before during or past their prime !! Well done on this. TFS Julie

Hello Tricia,
A fine close-up work with good details!
The composition is well balanced and the petals have this silky-crisp feeling...
DoF works well and isolates subject nicely from background!
