photoblog image The Tulip

I am not really good with names of flowers but i think this one is a tulip. if i am wrong please correct me.
Any way whatever the name of the flower the point is it was actually by itself and that was what caught my eye.

I guess this is another addition the the flowery pictures theme that is taking over the blog these days.

Well to that i say keep on rocking.

simply the blue texture in the backgroundsmile
Mobolaji Kamson: Thank you very much for the visit

Great background! Wish you hadn't blown out so much of the flower though, and maybe making the background darker or increasing contrast in post processing would make it nicer too.
Mobolaji Kamson: Veloran, welcome back, and thank you for the constructive comments

Nice shot. What flower is this?
Mobolaji Kamson: Since no one has corrected me, I will have to say its a TULIP

Love the isolation....but....I think you've lost alot of detail during the softening.
Mobolaji Kamson: I think i may have overdone it on this one

This is a good effort to start with. Your 'about me' says you want to improve the way you take and present your images. Here's my take on this shot. Others will have different views, of course!

For presentation, I might consider a vertical letterbox crop with the flower left of centre. To achieve this, simple crop off a lot of the left side quite close to the flower.

The flower is slightly over-exposed probably because the camera's meter tried to lighten the whole image because it perceived a large area of comparitive dark in the frame (your nbackground). For subjects like this, select the spot meter and expose for the flower. This would automatically make the background even darker and set off a better exposed flower to great effect.
Mobolaji Kamson: Looking foward to see you new images, welcome back, thank you for your well thought out comments

NICE shot man, like the isolation and contrast in colours. shame its lost some detail as a result of PP.
Mobolaji Kamson: Yeah i know, i have been roaming in the dark with regards to PP hopefully one of these days i will find a torch.

Nice shot, a little too blurry like my shot today

liking the tulip against the dark background.
Colin has said all that needs to be said. all i might humbly add is that you might also want to shoot in raw for this so you can experiment with the exposure settings later.

How did I miss such a pretty shot!? Mask, this shot has made me smile. I really like it. The background is freakin awesome. The subject is centered wonderfully and its just overall GOOD!

Keep this up!

Have no idea what everyone seems to be talking about. I love this picture. It's dreamy and calming. I am a romantic at heart and all I can see in this pic is the perfect image for a line in a poem I wrote years ago "YOU ARE TO ME.... a simple white rose in a single clouded sky".And I know a lot about flowers.... yes, this is definitely a tulip. Hey!for those who think the background is blurry or dark.... broaden your horizons,stand out and dare to be different, in other words learn from this TULIP.
