What a beautiful shot! The focus is wonderful on the nearest pair of tulips, and I love the texture of them- so smooth and soft and seemingly inviting my hand to just reach out and stroke those delicate petals...

The colours are fabulous, and I love how the flowers seem to glow in the light, glowing a lovely, warm shade of yellow, dashed with a coat of red-orange. I really like the blue background, also, quite a strange colour as it's not what we'd associate with nature, but the primary colours in this photo work extremely well.

Maybe, I would have preferred it if the third tulip was in focus like the other two also, or else have it a bit further in the background. As it is, it takes my attention away from the nicely focussed ones a bit.

However, all in all, a really glorious shot. The tulips' open cup of petals bring to my mind wide, flowing dresses, singing of laughter and music and sunshine... :heart:

Beautiful photograph :)
I have a request: Every Friday I send (email) a flower picture to my dear friend as token of my admiration, and affection for him. I was wondering if you had no objections if I used your beautiful flower picture to do this today :aww: Also, I maintain a "Flower Friday" journal where I post all the flowers I have sent every Friday, if you have no objections, I'd like to also put this picture up on my journal (it's not on dA). Of course, I give you FULL credit and I link back to you, too. Kindly write back to let me know if you have any objections to either of these things. Thank you very much in advance and thank you for taking such breathtaking photos! :heart:

So beautiful! :heart:
I love the contrast between the rather cold-coloured background and the warm-coloured tulips. I can imagine well how soft they must feel on the skin when you touch them. :3

These colors are extremely beautiful as well as the movement of tulips. I would not know how to say why, but there is of the musicality in this photography... :)

Just one shot, you can hardly call that a "Period"!
(But then you're right, of course...I did take more than one! :giggle:)

Thanks a lot, I'm glad you liked it.
I tried to get the background as blurry as possible, otherwise it would have looked rather busy with all the tulip stems...
