Parrot tulip Prof. Rontgen: I have tried taking this tulip by day but have never been satisfied with the result, whereas I feel that taken at night with flash after a shower, the true beauty, colours and detail are better captured, but please feel free to disagree.

My thanks to all who commented on Dumfries House.

Ronnie.

Wonderful image against the black background, Ronnie. Such detail with the droplets, and a real fiery colour. Beautiful.

I couldn't agree with you more. I find midday light so often burns out light parts of blooms. I use a polarizer and sometimes high speed and low ISO helps but for real control flash seems to do wonders. You sure know how to control it. TG

Just had a little read about Prof. Rontgen to remind myself about his achievements in discovery of X-Rays
and his being expelled from school for a minor misdemeanour and subsequent education and work.
I'm sure he'd be proud of your wonderful image Ronnie. Rather appropriate that your image shines in the dark too.
