This is another shot from Table Cape Tulip Farm (see map), tulip festival was just over a week ago and there were still fair amount of tulips in the filed..

The tulip is a perennial, bulbous plant with showy flowers in the genus Tulipa, which comprises 109 species and belongs to the family Liliaceae. The genus's native range extends from as far west as Southern Europe, North Africa, Anatolia, and Iran to the Northwest of China. The tulip's centre of diversity is in the Pamir, Hindu Kush, and Tien Shan mountains. A number of species and many hybrid cultivars are grown in gardens, as potted plants, or to display as fresh-cut flowers. Most cultivars of tulip are derived from Tulipa gesneriana. from Wiki

Hi Alaettin,
A nice display of Spring flowers, the tulips, in such a lovely composition. I like the shallow DOF you've chosen with the reds dominating against the yellows. I admire the choice of a single sharpened flower placed in the middle of the frame.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Alaettin,

You're capturing well many tulips by a good composition and bright tone, it's impressive to see two kind of lovely tulip with red and yellow. I remembered that your country is spring season now. The focus suits the central red tulip and light/perspective is efffective. And, the whole is harmonized well.


Really nice colour! Stands out of the gallery vibrantly! I like the narrow DOF with the focus on the single tulip flower in the middle...

I think a black vignette (gentle one) would work well with this.


Hi Alaettin
What a lovely shot of these beautiful colorful tulips captured with nice framing and very good use of light with shallow depth it looks wonderful.
