Tulips 2011
Every year I make a point of heading out to the tulip festival down the street to see what's on display. This year, unlike last year, the tulips were quite late. Many of the beds had not yet flowered. It's a challenge every year to come back with at least one picture that's a bit different. Most of my flower shots have a single in-focus bloom in the foreground with a blurred background. In this shot I tried picking a flower more in the middle, and I left the focus a bit soft. Something about the angle of the light gave it a very painted appearance. I like it.
