[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The tulip is like many other bulb flowers a favorite food of voles, one can begin to fight, unfortunately only with special cases. Which were to protect against vole feeding commercially available plastic baskets by biting at us, and defense plants and methods of expulsion against voles and moles were with us completely ineffective. In cases of extreme infestation can rely only on one wühlmausresistente bulbs as daffodil, grape hyacinth, fritillary or crown imperial.

Hi Janusz,
An agreeable high POV to capture this splendid tulip. Great sharpness and and a lovely composition adapting the perfect crop.
So clear details in the core of the flower and the petals as well.
Very neat work and f/10 worked marvelously.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Boa tarde Janusz,

What a beautiful flower and colors!
Excellent POV, light and focus!
Good BG and sharpness!


Hello Janusz, an inviting thumbnail but so much better full screen!
Love the star shaped tulip and the position within the frame.Good bokeh too.
Excellent sharpness on the petals and stamen.The out of focus front petals actually lead the eye into the centre of the flower.
Good work.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Janusz

Nice use of a shallow dof with good sharpness on the fg purple tulip flower. The yellow centre adds a nice splash of warm color. A good exposure on the white highlights. Tfs & have a great weekend!

tulipan ciekawy i ladny ale tlo mi sie nie podoba, a wrecz rozprasza

Bonsoir Janusz,

Magnifique calice de cette tulipe baignée d'une clarté qui laisse apprécier les détails généreux au coeur de cette fleur.
La nature en générale et florale en particulier s'attribue sans cesse de couleurs séduisantes, ici les pétales sont originaux.

A very beautiful macro image of this tulip with very sharp details, clarity and vibrant colors. Nicely framed with good bokeh, a very worthy image.
