Experimenting In Tulip Photo Settings

I was up on Parliament Hill one day during the festival and decided to photograph a particular section  of tulips with different settings. Black and white, sepia, aqua, and negative follow the first shot.

  2. Interesting to see tulips in different settings. The last one looks like a painting rather than photograph. Looks very pretty!

  6. It's fun to experiment once in awhile as you never know when you might make a discovery. I like the last one.

  8. @Janis: thanks!

    @Tamago: I was quite surprised by the negative version.

    @Norma: I probably do... haven't checked!

    @Beth: negative. I've used it before on landscape shots, but it ends up giving a totally cool look with flowers.

    @Jan: thanks!

    @Red: thank you.

    @Linda: thanks!

  9. Interesting experiment with some interesting effects. Personally, I think tulips need to be in their natural color.

  10. That's cool to get the different effects! Nice to see what they look like, I do like the original though.

  11. Creative experiments, William, but the original is my preferred. I know I'm probably old-fashioned...

  13. I love to do this stuff but I agree with the consensus above: It's Number One that gets the prize.

  14. Tulips are one of my favorite flowers....and I also like to 'play' with different versions of a photo. :)

  15. @Sharon: so do I.

    @Cloudia: indeed.

    @Bill: that appears to be a consensus.

    @Karl: many people can be old fashioned.

    @Lois: thanks!

    @RedPat: that is popular.

    @Lowell: it's a majority view!

    @Pat: the tulips this year were stunning.

  16. The first one will be my choice!

  17. No, no! Never! Always color. Having gotten that out of my system, that last version is interesting. :-)

  20. Gorgeous tulips. I love the original but the last one was very special.

    ReplyDelete
  21. That last shot is very interesting but with the high contrast and complementary colors of the first one it's hard to beat that.

  22. It's fun to see these! The black and white is surprisingly lively!

  23. @Marleen: that seems a common opinion.

    @Revrunner: the last one really surprised me.

    @Marietta: I did hear back from Ciel, who's got VDP on the backburner for a little bit.

    @Mari: oh yes!

    @Nancy: thanks!

    @Kay: it is, yes.

    @Linda: the early photos of the first years of the Tulip Festival were generally always black and white, and that got me to thinking of photographing a spot or two in black and white... and then from there just using other settings. The black and white settings really do end up hiding darker tulips though, when one has a dark background like those bushes.

  24. There are folks who can play around with B & W, but I never think of it! I think winter is so long, and white, I'm happy to see the colours back!
