[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A recent visit to the spectacular Keukenhof near Lisse in the Netherlands has rewarded many beautiful pictures worth posting.

I played around with the depth of field quite a bit. A very shallow depth of field does create rather dramatic effect. However, with so many picture perfect flowers around it becomes more of a challenge to get them all in.

I think this picture came out nicely, with the pink tulip breaking the colour of the flowers around it. I tried to keep the depth of field suffiently shallow to create a striking effect, but not too much so that you can still see the flowers around it.

Resized, corrected levels slightly and a little bit of sharpening.

Hi Johan,
Excellent DoF in this shot and you certainly were focused in on the pink - nicely positioned in frame and good PoV to get the background.

Best wishes
