Your comments regarding my tulips were very interesting. I enjoyed ALL your comments , whether you liked the background or not. Just let me say that the actual flower was presented as in the original exposure and remained un-tweaked. The background was simply done using various photoshop brushes and a bit of cloning. Than I used topaz clean, adjust and detail to get the dose of texture. I'll be a bit gentler with the brushes next time
