The Oriental Lily and Easter Tulips bloom

Discussion in 'Macro, Flowers, Insects, and Greenery' started by Harry Lavo, Apr 27, 2011.

  1. On Easter Sunday I posted photos of tulips and an Oriental Lily, They began to open two days later and I caught these shots. Then I put them together in a composite for yet another shot.

    The flowers, esp the tulips, look great !!
     
  5. Beautiful shots, Harry! #1 is my fav!
     
  6. It sure does, Tom.

    Thanks, Tony. I'm getting fonder each time I try it...at shoting flowere using a wide angle lens, close-up. It gives an interesting perspective that is not so common.

    They are very healthy, Kelvin. They are being transplanted into my garden this weekend.

    Thanks, Dossy. I like it as well...though the wide-anle approach worked well on thses.
