If you’re looking for springtime beauty with vivid color, it’s hard to beat tulips. These unique, deep red beauties, surrounded by a sea of pink, yellow-fringed tulips were photographed during the annual Tulip Festival in Pella, Iowa.
I struggled with this image. I spent a lot of time trying to get the five red tulips to stand out from the background. The colors are close enough, it’s hard to distinguish the detail of the foreground from the blur of the background. I’m not sure I achieved the separation I wanted the average viewer to experience. I’ve looked at it so much, I can no longer be objective. You’ll have to decide and let me know your first impression.
