[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I thought it appropriate to post an image of flowers for today and at the moment have been experimenting with these Tulips as a subject.

I have photographed them in a number of different places on different settings. This one is using strong sunlight filtered through a voile window blind. The colours still looked a little too saturated when I viewed the image so I desaturated the shot in Photoshop until the shade was the one I wanted. This also added a nice pink tint to the background, which before was too stark.

Hi Joy,
I like this bouquet of tulips with such a warm cast all over especially on the BG.
Good focusing and light is just fantastic!
An adequate post for this Special Day for lovers being Valentine's Day!
A Happy Holiday to you.
