Purple Tulip by Priscilla Farrell

March 2020 - Purple Tulip

About the Image(s)

How I Did It: This tulip was purchased for use in an Ikebana floral arrangement. Post processing included my routine of Photoshop Elements and Nik software's Detail Extractor. There were spots of pollen that were removed with the clone tool. The tulip was past it's peak but it served two purposes nicely.

Camera information: f18, 1/6 sec., ISO 400 Tripod, window light.

This is very well done technically. The subject has a lot of impact and is sharp with fine lines showing up in the peddles.The contrasting colors are perfect and there is a good appearance of depth. I might lighten up the base of the stamens a bit. Well done.   Posted: 03/17/2020 14:42:18

Hi Priscilla: You have your window lighting technique down to a science for certain. Well thought out composition placing the center of the tulip near the lower right 1/3 power point area which works very well. The central part of the tulip flower is tack sharp, the outer flower petals display a certain softness that adds to the overall mood and feeling of the subject. Really Good Work !!   Posted: 03/22/2020 10:56:24
