This is an annual Tulip Festival in my hometown Hamura in Japan. Every spring, the field is turned into the sea of colorful tulips.

Alex - What program do you use to enhance your photos? I have not done anything to mine - they are just as a took them. I would like to purchase something to enhance my work and I am not sure if I should go with photoshop...thanks! #4694489

Alex T. Mizuno August 25, 2007

For this particular one, I just used Saturaion in Photoshop. If you don't have it yet, you really need a basic editing software like Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. Then you can add some plug-ins such as Mr. Contrast, Flood Filter and Neat Image Noise Reducion. #4695139
