hey petra,

oooohhhhh...this is spectacular. i love the starkness of this shot. this shot is awesome! the more i look at it, the more i like it. i love the washed out background, and how it causes the tulip to stand out. also, the tones are perfect! really nice.
Petra: Thanks for your very kind comment Nicole...i have missed themsmile
I would have placed the tulip a bit more off center...
Petra: Could have been better Chantal, i like centering the subject though..

The composition may need some improvement, but i can't say for sure what. I don't believe just off center will be the answer. Maybe going portrait style, where you loose most of the left part of the picture?

The contrasting colours, subject the DOFfed window in the background, everything but the balance in the pic is great.

If I concentrate on your title I would say you have managed to represent it, but I can't shake the feeling that it can look better.
Petra: Thanks Louis...i cant help liking centering the subject! smile
