Bought some attractive tulips at the greengrocer and did some experimenting with still life. I used a black card pinned to the wall for background and natural light.

Nikon D7000, Sigma 50 mm F2.8 macro AF. f/4.5, 1/50s, ISO 200, 50 mm.
RAW conversion: Viewed/selected in Picasa or Nikon View, converted to DNG using Adobe DNG Converter (Adobe CS4 can’t open Nikon D7000 raw files), adjusted brightness and contrasts with NikColorEfex Pro, slight crop and saved to jpg in Adobe CS4.

Sold – a print-) Thank you to the buyer!!!
