tulips trying on a different dress...

For my birthday last month I received a big bunch of my favourite flowers...tulips.
Just tulips...simple, elegant, botanically ancient and oh so photogenic...
 So off I went with a shutterbugs enthusiasm.
I started playing with filters and adjusting the contrast, the shadows, the highlights...
 
 
 ...then the sepia, black and white and fade filters came on board...
 I love the antique feel of these ones...
 
 
...a gift that kept on giving!

They're beautiful! Tulips are a favorite of mine too. Especially the pink and the yellow. Lovely photos. I can feel the softness of the petals in the pics!
