Same tulips as the earlier shots. This time I used a light directly behind the tulips. I converted this shot to sepia in photoshop.

beautiful, just beautiful. i like the interesting textures created on the back petals, and crisp detail on the pods in the center. excellent idea with the lighting, almost looks like a lamp itself, with some cloth draping around.

Nicely done...It took me a second when I first looked at it to realize what it was. Very cool.

Great shot. I love it when lighting is used a unique way. I like the sepia, but I'm curious to see what is looks like in color.

Wow! The light was a very nice idea, tath´s sounds like unreal thing. V.nice!!!

What a 'bright' idea! Really great! The backlight created a symmetry hexagon on the tulip. Amazing photo!

I am amazed. At first I thought it was a negative, then I read what you wrote. Really an original perspective.

Absolutely stunning. I love the gentle fragility.

Posted by: javajive at March 18, 2005 2:12 AM

great idea with the back light, nicely executed

Posted by: jyoseph at March 18, 2005 1:22 AM

Very good job with the lighting!

Posted by: Caroline at March 17, 2005 10:26 PM

Wow. wow. wow. Triple wow ;-) Fantastic lighting choice!

This is really fantastic. I love how the flower practically glows from within, but it's not overdone. I really feel like I'm inside this flower.

I think it was an excellent choice to put this in sepia.

great shot. find it more arresting than the previous tulip photos

Gaja, you know how you blogged a few entries ago about having a hard time verbalizing responses to photos, even when the reaction is strong? I'm having that feeling now and I wish I 1) had something better to say instead of repeating Chiaroscuro and Sean, and 2) didn't have such a green monitor (but I'll be sure to come back to this post on a different computer).

Gorgeous. It looks especially good in sepia.
