Not one of my best for sure but I thought I'd give it an airing as it is the best of about 20 takes (the rest already consigned to trash) and the result of a wet afternoon's work.
May yet get consigned to trash though.

My thanks to all who commented on my last posting Gold at the End of Day.

Ronnie.

What on earth are you talking about.
I would say this is fantastic, with colours so deep and bright.
Love the way the light has caught the leaves at the top and back.
This has great impact to me...GrinWink

I totally agree with Jocelia, Ronnie.
A great shot indeed, and guessed it was one of yours from the Gallery thumbnails.

Wonderful Ronnie and I'll bet just one image.
Don't know how you achieve such perfection.
I've tried your method but always have to resort
to methods taught in Macro workshop.

A KS special, Ronnie. The light on the foliage gives a lovely depth and the reds have some excellent shades. What is obvious though, is the care you have taken in getting such a good arrangement of the blooms, size, shape and orientation.

A good result for your efforts Ronnie. I also find tulips very difficult en masse - they lend themselves to images of individual blooms much more easily for me. A
