Lovely Beth. Just can't go wrong with back lit tulips. Classic. #10138104

Jeff E Jensen 5/15/2012 1:03:18 PM

This is beautiful, Beth. I would like to see a tad more room at the top though. Perhaps matching what is on the right side. #10138238

B9th - You've got yourself a great floral image here. Love the bokeh in the background and the backlighting. Very nicely done. I don't think it needs more room at the top but it wouldn't be too difficult to do if you want to try it.

Michael Kelly 5/15/2012 7:11:22 PM

Great exposure and BG. This is a lovely shot. Like Jeff, I think it could use just a touch more space at the top. #10138581

Beth Spencer 5/15/2012 7:15:39 PM

Thanks everyone, and for you Jeff, I added to the top.
I sat these in front of the screen door and used the green from the outside and rain on the screen door as the background!! It was too wet to go out, so made the most of it! #10138590

Jeff E Jensen 5/15/2012 7:35:24 PM

Awesome! #10138611

Jeff E Jensen 5/15/2012 7:35:56 PM

Beth, this is just beautiful and I like the additional space at the top. Thanks for sharing how you shot this. Very, very lovely. #10139120

Kristin Duff 5/16/2012 7:59:27 AM

With this photo, I can smell the rain in the air and feel the sun breaking thru the clouds! Still in love with that awesome background! #10139187

Alexandra Hankova 5/16/2012 12:16:31 PM

Congratulations on the EP :) I love the green from the background; great idea to use the screen door. #10140032

Peter W. Marks 5/17/2012 5:56:59 AM

An ingenious solution to shooting on a rainy day, Beth. Well done. And Kristen, ditto your remarks; that is what images should create in we viewers, those certain thoughts that go beyond the pixels! Beautiful! #10140207

Aimee C. Eisaman 5/17/2012 6:54:44 AM

Beautiful colors in this shot and that background is wonderful as the others have said. I prefer your original post over the edit because the edit has obvious signs of cloning. Congrats on your EP! :~) #10140248
