Love the background colour and texture Kate, but the flower arrangement I am not keen on. the lighting is excellent.

Yep, texture, colour and lighting are excellent.
Tulips can be stiff and awkward or floppy, I'd say the arrangment here is different
and affective.

I love tulips, though I prefer mine less fresh looking!Smile All the same I think the arangement works well and is beautifully simple. The texture definitely adds to the image.

Very nice piece of work you really are getting to grips with textures etc I think that the arrangement of flowers is just a matter of persona taste and if you like it thats all that matters - Elizabeth xx

Not too sure about this one, Kate: I feel the b/g tone here rather competes with the red of the tulips, and as Trev suggested the arrangement seems stiff and unnatural to my eye.
I think the arrangement can work however given a different presentation: I tried a very similar arrangement with the blooms in an almost horizontal position, the b/g totally black (that will not surprise you), no frame applied, the foot of the stems faded out and posted on site here with my black b/g merging seemlessly with the ePHOTOzine black b/g. At least I thought it worked and it came about from a suggestion by Dougie {Scottishlandscapes}.
Sorry if I seem a bit negative about this one, Kate: just my opinion, although I see from the above comments that others are pleased with your presentation.........suppose it takes all kinds, eh?
Ronnie.

Although the composition is quite sound I feel that the backdrop somewhat distracts slightly the eye from this wonderfully coloured tulip. If the opacity of the backdrop was reduced to around 60% I feel it was make the image more appealing. Your work is nevertheless still as wonderful as ever Kate.

Like the line of the flowers but think a paler bg would emphasise them better. But I would be very happy if it were mine.Wink

I do like this image Kate. Has a painterly feel to it. I have read some of the comments. I understand that these are just the viewers opinion and honestly given. At the end of the day if you like the image then thats all that matters Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile

I don't think it would do the tulips much good though.

I do like this one Kate, great presentation colour and background.
