Black Sheep of the Tulips

Black Sheep of the Tulips
The Shot This is another shot taken in the famous Keukenhof Gardens of Holland, the largest in Europe. I spotted this and noticed the black tulips were standing quite a bit taller than the others giving a good opportunity to make them stand out.

The shot was taken at f6.3 for a narrower depth of field.
This shot was taken handheld with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 28-80 zoom. 3 raw images were taken at 2EV spacing for HDR.

However there was too much movement between the images so I created 2 extra images from the original RAW OEV file for the over and under files.

This picture was enhanced with HDR processing followed by the new Topaz Clarity and Photoshop to bring in more detail especially in the main Tulips.

Full details of the processing together with before and after images are on my Blog see Edwin Jones Photography Blog
