Available to buy on…

My garden had few flowers in at the time when I took this image. So each weekend in february I have been buying myself a bunch of spring flowers. The tulips caught my attention and so had to come home to sit on my dinning room table. The early morning light lands on it and so the petals just too beautful not to capture.

Canon compact A3100 IS
Indoor low natural light.
Hand held, macro setting No flash
Cropped, worked in CS 2 levels then free download texture applied (to remove background painted wall of the dinning room) texture Rubyblossom no 5 then in to efex peo 3 colour in tonal contrats to lift the petal detail slighlty.

A Magpie when it comes to photography I capture anything and everything that captures my eye and lens. A beginner in this field I love how the ordinary becomes less ordinary.
