Tulip Tones

By conrad  
I didn't want to do exactly the same as the others who uploaded toned tulips the past few weeks. So instead of just toning this one down, I sort of modified the tones, making the tones different instead of just softer. Originally an orange-coloured tulip against a blue sky. Modifications and comments welcome!

Conrad - I love the subtle colours and simple styling of this - its a beautiful image.

I did wonder who it would look in the more traditional "Left to Right" format so have put up a mirrored image - I'm still not sure its an improvement on the original though

Really like the effect that you have achieved. The colour of the flower is so subtle and goes well with the background.

Thanks, all.

Brian, I was wondering who would bring up the subject of having it from left to right. I suppose Im a real European, although Im also an anglophile - I do drive more on the right than on the left, and that seems to have something to do with it, some people claim... Personally I like it from right to left, but I think your mod is equally nice. Thanks.

That's me Conrad - always dependable, as I said, I'm not convinced about my mod - but it had to be done! Smile

Interesting point about driving on the "wrong side of the road" - most, if not all European languages are written & read left to right and top to bottom.

I always understood that this learnt mode of scanning was the argument put forward for the left to right photographic presentation?

What do I know - I just take pictures - LOL

Beautiful colours - nicely manipulated.
Like the original too but this one is more appealing.

Thanks, Paul and others.

Paul, I agree - I really only put up the original today because I thought it might be interesting to see them next to one another in my portfolio. I prefer this one as well. And apparently, so does Pete... Smile
