Red Defector by Ryser915 Red Defector by Ryser915
While walking through the Boston Public Garden, I noticed a lone red tulip amongst a patch of white tulips, directly across a walkway from a patch of red tulips. Somehow one of the red tulips ended up with the white ones. Maybe it liked the white ones better haha. The group of red tulips are in the background, I tried to make it look like the red one was almost looking back at them. Also, the black in the background is a line of very tall bushes blurred to darkness from the depth of field.

what a clear shot!
I really love it how the red flowers in the back are blurred so you focus on the flowers up front.
You can really see the details on the flowers.
I just love this picture!
it's so clear.You must have a really nice camera, and also,you didn't center the object of the photo which is really good :D
The only thing I would suggest is to maybe just fix the blurryness on the white flowers in the front,they are kind of blurry and distract my eyes at least from the true beauty of this photo!
great job and Deff a fave

This is such a great photo! Well done! The single red tulip among the white ones makes for a really interesting shot! The only thing that bothers me is the the red tulips in the background, as I feel it draws your attention away frm the focus of the piece. Also, if you have focused the camera directly on the target, the red tulip would have been in the centre of the picture, but having it off centre makes for an interesting photo at least! I have to say, it's a great shot overall, and you should be very proud! Well Done!

LOOOOVE this! Wish it were a print, because I would want a copy framed and hanging in my bedroom... I think it would fit in there perfectly!
