Our First Tulip
I found this tulip in full bloom in our front flower bed today when I came home from work. It is in a bad spot, right up against the side of the concrete porch. The flower was facing west and it was around 7:00 PM when I got around to taking the picture. I wanted to try and make the shadows a secondary subject to the flower so I stuck a white mat board behind for a better background and to give more definition to the shadows. I used the Rough Pastels Filter in PhotoShop to give it more of an artsy feel.
