im not usually a huge fan of flower photos but this one definitely has the coolness factor. nice work!

Just cruising some portfolios and saw this. I like it's simplicity. The yellow background is perfect for this. It is subdued just enough to compliment the yellow edges of the flower without competeing with it. Very well done.

Excellent composition, but a little over-sharpened.

Very simple, effective composition, but the glass drops you down a couple of rungs on the ladder in my book. Otherwise a really great job.

I enjoy this photo, although there are numerous tulip photos... the yellow background is a pretty original idea though, nice shot

I will say that this is a fine capture of minimalism. I like how the flower goes into the frame from the left side of the photo and just leads it out there into the negative space. we are not run out of the photo by any distracting crap and the background is solid making it also not distracting. Lighting is great. No hot spots, no shadows. Focus and clarity are also wonderful. We get some nice detail in the flower and leaves. Lovely color by the way. Excellent shot. I vote it high.

Excellent subject. Would have liked to have seen crisper focus on tulip.

My FAVORITE flower!! ya know, I like the composition, but what do you think about the base of the glass being shown? I can't put my finger on why exactly, but I feel like it would help. Maybe you could zoom out a little so that the flower isn't any higher than it is now. i dunno. :) 7 for having my favorite flower, and for making me happy.

The glass (vase!) is little on the extreme side.

Great, absolutely, great. I really like it. Probably, I´d like to see that with another background, perhaps white or black. But, just my opinion. Good luck in the challenge. 8

it reminds me of one of my pictures. simplistic. but i wish the whole glass was in the picture. and probably a different tone of the yellow background wouldn't hurt. (7)

04/29/2005 12:46:59 AM
i would lighten that tan background a little, takes too much away from the main object

Nice. I like the yellow color. It stands out with all the white & black ones.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 04:22:42 PM
Aw c'mon, you can think of a better title than that can't you?

(The great picture compensates for it though so don't worry.)

Very nice. I love how the yellow background is mirrored in the highlights on the tulip. And the lines of the flower draw the eye nicely into the frame.
