About the Image(s)

I took the original at Garvan Gardens in Hot Springs when their tulips were blooming. As you see, I gave it a black background to highlight the color of the tulip.I also straightened it and enhanced the color. It was shot at f8, 1/250 sec., ISO 400,100 mm. Naming it "Lipstick Red". Love taking closeups of flowers to show their intricacies.

Very crispy and clean. I like the original very much - the background is nicely blurred so that the foreground is the focal point. However, I also like the edited version too, since it shows off the delicate petal texture, the highlights and the range of colors very well. Great job on both!   Posted: 05/19/2020 09:13:06

I always like flowers on black backgrounds. Nice job of masking. I thought your final was a little to straight up so I tried rotating it a little. Didn't see your original. I think leaving it in that position would have made it a little less static to me. Overall, very pretty.   Posted: 05/20/2020 14:08:07

Very nice image. I have done a lot of flowers on black backgrounds over the years but have recently started playing with textures which creates a whole different feel. I will probably submit one next month, What I would suggest is a one or two pixel frame to separate the image from the background.   Posted: 05/20/2020 19:09:39
