Tulip for Dad

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Tulip for Dad
Tulip for Dad
My dad gives me tulip bulbs every fall to plant in my yard. The greens always come up, but I never get a flower. He said maybe I plant them upside down! LOL! This year I got one tulip! Horray! So this photo is dedicated to my Dad. It was dark, rainy and windy yesterday when I took this photo. I was hand holding the camera and my ISO was set very high...ISO 1000. F4 1/400. Do you think it looks too grainy?

Wow Sharon, this is beautiful!!! I love tulips!!! The colors and lighting are gorgeous!!! I don't think it looks grainy. If I had my ISO up to 1000, the picture would be ruined. This is awesome!!!

Beautiful image & dedication, Sharon. As much as I love flowers, I'm not very good at growing them, either. This looks really great for ISO 1000.

It's a SPLENDID image, Sharon!!!! Wonderful colors and details!!!! I love it!!!!

I'm wondering if you plant the bulbs deep enough. They need to be planted 6 inches deep...just a thought.
