Dutch Tulips Rainbow Lines

Dutch Tulips Rainbow Lines
The Shot
I have just completed a cycling and Photography tour of the Tulip growing region of Holland just south of Amsterdam. This year due to the very cold and late start to spring the Tulip flowering was delayed by 2 weeks to I delayed the original planned dates and got there for peak flowering time. This picture was taken from the famous Keukenhof Gardens at a viewpoint overlooking a farmer’s field,

I had two SLR cameras with me on the bicycle. I used a Sony A550 for low down flower shots using its adjustable screen. The Sony A700 was used for HDR auto bracketing. This shot was taken handheld with the A550 zoomed in to 60mm to compress the lines of flowers a little. The farm worker moving among the tulips was a stroke of luck though I did wait for him to move to the right position.

The colours were very intense in the original. No HDR in this shot and no use of vibrance or saturation.

Processing involved only sharpening and clarity effect. See my Blog for the original and the processing details.
Expect to see a lot of Tulip pictures in the next few weeks.
Full details of the processing together with before and after images are on my Blog see Edwin Jones Photography Blog
