TL, Next one from the Michigan, Holland Tulip festival. You don't need a passport to visit this Hollad :D

They had almost 100's of different varieties of tulips, and I'll never ever remember all of them.

I was trying to spot some unique looking as well as combination of tulips.
I spotted this pair....little aside, and absolutely no any onstacles in BG.

Love those colors, and the looks of this flower.
Hope you'll also enjoy.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Ahh, you did find Tulips in Holland MI! Very nice Vandana! The clarity here is out of this world! Excellent DOF on this also, the WHOLE flower is sharp with blurred BG! Excellent! Can't wait to see more!

Hello Vandana,

The crispness and the details of these tulips is quite amazing! The light makes the most subtle and interesting of shadows, and, there is a little visitor on board!
Lovely colours and lovely presentation.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Vandana,
Very beautiful flowers with marvellous detail and DOF. Simply amazing!!

Hi Vandana,
What some lovely colours from these tulips. You have captured them so well, great detail.
Good DOF.

Hi Vandana,

Nice pair of tulips! Almost perfect! But couldn't you get that fly out of there ;-). I'm joking. That is in a sense something that makes it more interesting, since you'll start looking... What's that fly doing there? :-)

Greetings, Dennis

PS: A pity you don't allow workshop postings, otherwise I'd un-fly it for you ;-).

Goede avond dear Vandana.
What a beautiful Tulip you shows us here.
Lovely looking picture you created of it.
Last week we were in the famous 'Keukenhof' I took many nice shots there, it was splendid weather and still lots of flowers where blooming.

Compliments on how you handled the high contrast between the red and white Vandana. The fly barely visable on the right flower is a nice touch. All the Tech stuff is right on especailly the clarity. Quality lens in the hands of an expert.


perhaps this pair was out of the mob quitly awaiting you to come and get captured.
very nicely shot with very good lighting angle.

Excellent capture.
Excellent sharpness, DOF an details.
Love the colors.
Very different.

Hi Vandan
No comments. It's so lifelike and the little insect makes it even more natural

Yes Vandana,

They sure are enjoyable this pair.
Lovely light on the tulips and those edges are indeed very attractive - indeed nothing in the BG that distracts from these beauties.

Have a lovely Sunday and TFS

Not only nice flowers, but very well captured, Vandana. They look razor sharp, this small aperture renders allround sharpness on the flowers. Lucky for you the backdrop was at a nice distance, or it would have been sharp too, I guess...

Hello Vandana
A breathtaking capture. Youve managed to enhance the appeal and serenity of these flowers.Very Sharp, Crisp and superb details.
Exceptional Job

hi vandana, this is nice the flowers are razor sharp with a nice blurry background, excellent colors and composition, nice work,

Hello Vandana,the colour of these tulips reminds me of Raspberry Ripple ice-cream,they are beautiful.
The sharpness is wonderful.I love the blurred bg, it complements the colours of the flowers.
The light creates very subtle shadows.

Very striking couple indeed. The center composition works well -- I don't know why though. Maybe because the flowers are slightly different in size. Great DoF choice. Strong and warm colours. TFS. K2

Really great work Vandana!
