Orange Tulips by Nelson Charette

May 2022 - Orange Tulips

About the Image(s)

I made this image at Cox Arboretum in Dayton Ohio. They had a section with many varieties of tulips.
I shot this with my Olympus MX1, with the 40-150 lens, I used the in-camera focus stacking to get everything in focus.
Processed with Capture One 22, and Photoshop.

Love the colors in this image. I also like the texture you captured on the petals. Each line of orange jumps out of the age. The curves of each petal are also really lovely. It has an abstract quality.   Posted: 05/13/2022 13:59:10

Very sharp image of these striking tulips. The texture from the red on yellow really makes this image. The focus stacking made the tulips sharp from front to back, but the green stems and leafs are out of focus, very well done. The partial petal in the lower left is a bit of a distraction, but not enough to take away from the image.   Posted: 05/14/2022 13:39:54

The details, exposure and colors are wonderful, and I like the blurred background very much. The tight crop is interesting. As Tom said, the partial petal in the lower left is a distraction as is the tip of orange showing in the upper left corner.   Posted: 05/14/2022 14:16:33

The focus stacking ability of your camera is amazing. You can really see the quality when you zoom in on the picture. I like the slight S shape in composition and the modest sunlight shinning on the tips of the petals. The petals look painted by brush. Tulips built a nation.   Posted: 05/21/2022 14:39:41
