Combination of two images - both lit from behind with a lightbox.
As you can see, I don't seem to be done experimenting with my tulips yet.

Thanks for that in-depth evaluation!
ah..one thing I don't like is the sudden cut off the the stem at the bottom
A beautiful exposure lighting detail tones and composition.

Ah, now we're getting somewhere. Honesty, I like that.
Makes me curious - how would you have done it?
very nicely done
let it be the end rather than hanging there, thats just my preference.
Ah, but I thought of that option - only it would have ruined my line and border idea.

He wouldn't he's too busy morphing with his dog
Well it could touch the border, but it doesn't bother me the way it is.

Great idea and technique as well as capture Conrad

It would still be cut off straight, then, wouldn't it.

That must be one of the nicest things you've ever said about any of my images, LOL! One of the few things, actually.
Thanks, everyone else, too, for the comments, by the way!
Edit: Oh, wow, and thanks, Pete for the HC! Thought I had lost my touch in 2007, but maybe it's coming back...
oh, what do I know....
I feel silly now...
I know exactly how you feel. I've done that, too. Telling people they should change something about their image, and along comes Pete and gives it an award! Don't stop, though, Cole - judging from your portfolio, you have every right and reason to make suggestions!
Super image, lovely colour and detail.
Excellent image, very well thought out and well done on the HC
After all the banter I am afraid to have my say, well.....actually I like it cut off at the bottom before the border that is. The background looks artificial and the flower is an amazing photo which draws me too look at the image a second, third time... anyway that my view and Click
Another wonderful image C, but don't you think you are milking that one tulip you got weeks ago to death? I know you are Dutch, but is this not taking the piss out of stingyness?
Mirjam, actually, this particular tulip has only appeared on EPZ once before - the previous images (except one) were of other flowers from the same bunch. So I wasn't stingy enough to buy a whole bouquet! And no, a Dutchman being influenced by the Scottish people he mingles with hasn't done it either, just in case anyone would suggest that!
Marc, no matter what other people (or I myself, for that matter) say about my images, you can always say what you think! Do you mean 'artificial' in a negative way, or as a positive contrast with the natural beauty of the flower? It's just some paper that I photographed on a lightbox.
This is beautiful and creative. I love the way the flower curves, and the way the leaves are arranged. I also like the balance of space on the top and the bottom of the paper. White on white is very elegant. Well done on the HC.
Hah you think that's bad I pointed out the stray debris on Cattyal's anemone and it got an EC tonight.
I have said nice things about your tulips before and I even dedicated a doggy photo to you once
Touchē, but I don't think they sell them by the flower, lol.
Still, one tulip or a complete bunch, you have performed miracles on them.
Quote: said nice things about your tulips before
Just joking, Cheryl. And just encouraging you to make more comments, I suppose.
I'd forgotten about the doggy photo, yes, you're right.
An EC, eh? Serves you right!
Mirjam, actually all of this came about because a previous lightbox experiment didn't work out the way I wanted, and then I saw something at Ikea which I thought I could do, or do better, with an adaptation of my previous method.
You have done a superb job with the light box..this is such an elegant image and the lighting is wonderful.
oops, sorry I hit Enter twice
Do you mean 'artificial' in a negative way, or as a positive contrast with the natural beauty of the flower?
Very positive I like what you have created
Okay, wasn't sure for a moment - and either way was fine, really. I appreciate all comments, especially the candid ones. Thanks!
Simply superb.Congrats on the HC.
PS congrats on your HC
