Last weekend was the beginning of the 60th commemorative edition of the famous Canadian Tulip Festival held in Ottawa . The Canadian Tulip Festival has grown to become the largest in the world with over 500,000 visitors every year to admire the 1 million tulips that are in bloom in the National Capital during this period . It is held from May 4 till 21th of May . We were there on the first weekend in superb weather to view the flowers , tulips are the stars here of course but other flowers are also on display in flower beds in and around the city center . Commissioner Park grabs the most of the million blooms with 300,000 in this park alone , anyway it was great to be there with the crowd ! At times it was difficult to get even near the edge of the tulip beds but we managed . Snapped a few hundreds photos on that one day we spent there. It is an easy 2 hour drive from my town. Thank you for looking . My contribution to the theme of this Friday.
Have a great weekend all,

Hi Carol

Same as Ron, I can critique at least today, but 2 days in a row with no posting of images rights. Good use of a shallow dof here with good fg sharpness & nice repetition of the tulips. The 3 pink flowers break the yellow with red streaks pattern superbly. Tfs!

Same problems Ron addressed with uploading a picture on TL, I am facing too here in Germany, Carol!

A superb contribution to Friday's theme with an exceptional focus and contrast.
I like the inclusion of 3 pink tulips which make the even more interesting in its appeal.
Light is the best part of show which brings certain glow in the shot.
A white bordered frame does enhance the charm of the floral scene too.

I wish if all technical things become functional by tomorrow hopefully I may able to upload one picture to Friday's theme too.


Best regards,

Nice one Carol. YOu know I love tulips, so this one strikes my fancy!! Great colorful photo ... I might have cropped down a little further from the top :)
yes, seems we are the only ones able to post. I had no trouble ... first time I tried. However, this is my first attempt this week ... don't know if I would have had the same success earlier in the week.
Have a great weekend amigo!
(got your e ... thanks! Will try to send a short reply ... if not, enjoy your trip .. have a fantastic time.)

Boa tarde Carol,

linda fotografia, que na minha opinião merecia estar em outro site. Este aqui é um horror, primitivo.
Linda compoição, bela contribuição para um tema que eu não consigo postar.


(*) I decided to remove then shots of mine per day I can't upload a new.

Ciao Carol, fascinating composition with fantastic tulips, wonderful bright colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hi Carol,
Great use of shallow DOF in this floral presentation. The focal point being on the lovely threesome of pink tulips contrasting splendidly with the yellow and green. A considerable depth can be admired with the dark tree trunks in between and the blurred BG continuing the perspective.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Wow! Looks like flower heaven! Of course somebody has to different even in flowers. Nicely captured with good use of the dof. Wonderful colors with good saturation. Very well done, tfs.

(And, how come you were able to post?)

Another standout one Carol, nicely layed composition, natural colours,
and the three pink blooms to add interest.
Well seen and well presented.

Hi Carol.

Stunning scene, I like the lower use here, takes in all the colourful heads of tulips. I like the idea of a few non yellow blooms mixed in as rogues. Well seen and taken. TFS

A great low angled POV image of this field full of tulips. The 3 pink blossoms amidst the numerous yellow ones make an interesting color contrast. The angle of the light reveals the textures and form of each tulip.
Just a beautifully done composition.
