Spring Tulip
Lens: DA* 55 1.4 Camera: k5 Photo Location: Idaho ISO: 80 Shutter Speed: 1/180s Aperture: F13.5 



2 strobes: 1 CL low and zoomed in bare bulb. 1 CR high zoomed with narrow grid. 12 noon sun overhead but the strobes cut out the sun. Link to more photos of that day.

Would love to have feedback on how I could improve this shot.

Very beautiful! Almost like a delicate painting.

I certainly don't see how it could be improved, I love how the buds are softly lighted, as well as the tulip. Against the dark background it's outstanding.

I do find the background distracting. For me it should either be totally dark, or there should be more to see. But the composition is very nice, and also the light on the tulip is very well captured
