Went out yesterday with a view to trying for a few landscapes but within minutes of leaving the car I got caught in a deluge and retreated back home soaked through, SD card as empty as when I set out!
So had to resort to my black card b/g and an indoor shot of few tulips as the main performers.
But getting them to stay in this arrangement was the biggest problem, overcome by the use of Sellotape and a kitchen sponge stuffed beside the lower stems in a narrow vase.
NO TULIPS WERE HARMED IN THE FILMING OF THIS PRODUCTION!Wink

Details: see EXIF

Many thanks for all the favourable remarks on my last posting "The Smaller Picture", and with special thank you to Andy "andylea") for his User Award which was most gratefully received.

Ronnie.

Beautiful shot Ronnie. I can just picture the scenario, happens to me all the time. Generally results in a deluge of foul language Wink. I was thinking of going and getting some florists' oasis to stick them in. Anyway well done for getting them to stay as you wanted. Lovely colour and lighting, not to mention composition. Moira
