Isn't it?
In 17th century Holland spent fortunes to create this hybrid of tulip. The most prized one was Rembrandt Tulip....

These tulips are noted for their intriguing color patterns,
and you get lovely different colors. Vibrant, and really very beautiful.
Flowers bear striking resemblance to the tulips dipicted on the Dutch Masters.
Ok, this is all about these colorful, lovely tulips.

Thanks to cloudy weather after 4:00PM there, I got excellent contrast due to overcasted sky.

The top view of similar tulips is posted in workshop.

Thanks fro the visit

Hi Vandana,
Excellent composition with tree tulips . I have read somewhere that the best way to show flowers is with an odd number . They are very sharp and the color is very nice .

The top of the tulips.
Beautiful visual and composition

Such wonderful colours here.
I love that gentle pink/red colour mix with the white greatness.

Soft details, yet clear.

Excellent DOF here, giving nothing else than what you want to show us.

One remark, Vandana: I'd have posted the ws and have put this as a bonus shot in the ws section. Why? To break the series of tulips a bit, at least, to break the similar compo you used so far.
But that's just my 5 cents ;o). As usual the picture is technically almost perfect. I'd have cropped off the reddish flower near the left top corner, creating an even wider format. Again, just my feeling.

Hi Vandana,
Groupings of three is always considered visually pleasant ... this photo is a good example. Shallow DOF worked well here to showcase the flowers. Well captured and composed with good resulting image quality. Well done! tfs

Terrifically beautiful shot of a very beautiful flower.
The light and color are great and in great contrast with the deep greens of the soft background.
Great shot, well presented and visualized.

The red and white here are stunning together Vandana.
Love the curve that the three form in a row,
The lighting is excellent too. Well done.

Indeed that cloudy weather was also helpfull, but you picked a wonderful combination to make just the right composition.

Very attractive Vandana, I have been thinking of those dutch masters lately, I think I have to study those paintings again, to refresh my memorie of their use of light and shadows.

TFS and your kind notes on my photos - I will be back...


How did I miss these Triplets?? Wonderful tones and details, excellent darker BG Vandana! Hey! I got to talk to your buddy Johnnie on the phone the other day! He has such a deep voice! HAHA!

Hello, Vedrana,
I have looked all through your gallery and I appreciate that you noticed the post of my roses. You do such beautiful shots. I love this one. I am a huge fan of dark BG's in flower shots and this is great. Perfect light and contrast and wonderful color. The bokeh is just fabulous. I was also just amazed by your wildlife shots, too. So nice to see such an excellent gallery. Many thanks,

Hello Vandana
Composition-wise, the principle of three and this magnificent poster go along well!!
I'm dumbfounded by this rare variety so appealing by the delicacy of its coloration and by your control of highlights for much details in brighter areas.
Best regards.

Hello Vandana. Three is always better than two. All are crispy sharp in excellent color. I like the pleasant muted green background. Thanks for sharing and best regards. Jusni
