The sun was low in the sky, it was 5:30 pm, and the storm clouds were looming overhead. The wind was whipping at the tulips and making them bend. The fast shutter 1/1000 sec. stopped the action. In PS applied the unsharp mask and increased the contrast a little.

I like this very much. You don't usually see storm clouds over a beautiful display of tulips. The gray/pink combination is gorgeous.

Very cool! The whole effect is surreal. The flowers almost look like they are 'rendered'.

This is gorgeous. How did you get enough exposure with those settings on a cloudy day?

Fantastic lighting, colour and drama. Your focus is supreme too with a wonderful POV. I love this.
