Tulip Challenge.

By iancrowson  
One from a few years ago with spring in mind.
Photographed in our local seafront gardens.
Original background. I choose an isolated flower to get background flowers as far away as possible.
Large aperture to put background out of focus, fast shutter due to flower swaying in a breeze, low ISO for max quality.
I've added three V's
V2 shot outside like the first, natural background.
V3 studio shot with new background
V4 shot outside but background replaced by a textured one I made in photoshop
Get shooting, looking forward to seeing some great tulip images as spring arrives...very shortly I hope.
Thanks for looking.
