11/11/06 - Tulip & Friends

I tried two versions of this, the 2nd in portrait mode from a much lower angle - http://www.pbase.com/ed_k/image/70036915 - I couldn't decide between the two and so posted them both.
I also did another pair where I stopped way down to get all of the tulips in focus. I preferred the two that I posted - less busy - gives the viewer something to focus on.
Shot in natural light with a black backdrop.

Nikon D70
1/80s f/3.2 at 105.0mm full exif

I prefer this one, I like the focus, and the title!

I think I like the other one better. There is something in the way the shape of the petals that has an almost spiritual meaning drawing one beyond the tulip itself and into... But of course I love all of this series.
