  1. Beautiful shot Tammy! I love the colors-that red and yellow are a nice contrast to each other. Nice bokeh. A promise of warmer times to come.

  2. So pretty – a nice crisp focus on those petals! I like the soft background too.

  3. Tammy! Wow – what bold colors!! Gives us hope of spring, doesn’t it? Love the slightly off-center of composition.

    Right now, we here need some hope of spring. A week ago, we had one day of 70 degrees high, 48 degrees low. Now, it is 29 degrees out (10:30 pm). It has been sleeting but now its snowing. Forecast is for about 3 inches before this is done. A year ago at this time, we were in the midst of that horrific Ice Storm. I’d rather have the snow than the ice. DH said if we have another ice storm, we are moving south, like into Texas!! lol That would be okay with me as most of my Mother’s family is located there.

  4. What’s wrong with this photo? – Obviously no white, nothing to complain about, bet that is a boost to your spiriys.

  5. Beautiful – nice DOF, great colors and focus

  6. Hi Tammy,
    Beautiful Tulip! I love those colors together. Have a great day!


  7. Does this mean Spring will really come? Gorgeous colors and composition.

  8. Wonderful colors and I like the composition and DOF. Nice

  9. That is a sight for winter-weary eyes. The colors are so nicely saturated without any hint of glare.

  11. Beautiful flowers Tammy…I can smell Spring in the air…

  12. Beautiful, cheerful shot, Tammy! Nice focal field and the colors are brilliant.

  13. Isn’t it interesting how you can create such a macro effect from shooting at the very end of a long lens? These colors are really pretty and you have wonderful bokeh.

  14. Love it and it is Layers, Layers and more Layers!

  15. Love that the center of attention and focus is off to the left. Great DOF and wonderful colors in these beautiful tulips!

  16. Gorgeous colors, and great DOF. Wish I had some tulips, they’re not out here yet.

  17. Tulips are my favorite flowers right now. What a fantastic light and colours in the photo!

  18. Oooh, I love your flower shots. The colors in this are wonderful.

  19. Great bright light at left and soft focus at right. And the vibrant reds and yellows are wonderful!

  20. Yes, all of the above. Absolutely beautiful.

  21. How Pretty they are. The colors are amazing. Makes me long for Spring…….
