Tulips


Remember this gift (click here)? Well, today is my birthday so I got to open it and it is a new lens from Joe....this lens to be exact. I often complain about having to switch lenses when I am out and about to get more zoom, this should solve that problem. Today's photo wasn't taken with the new lens, though, I used my macro lens for this. This is actually 2 photos, I layered the top tulip on and faded it a bit. I don't do much digital art but sometimes I am in the mood to experiment.

You lucky thing, a new lens!!! Happy birthday and here's tomany many more.

Beautiful shot. I love the inlay that you have done too, it just completes it nicely. It almost has a painterly effect.

Stunning.

Happy Birthday! Just beautiful work here. I'm not sure what kind of lens you got but I have a 18mm to 200mm Nikon VR(Vibration Reduction)lens and it is fantastic. Great in low light and you can shoot about four stops lower than normal.Also, like you say, you don't have to switch lens as often.

Happy Birthday!!! I can't wait to see your work with the new lens. Beautiful work on the tulips - even though you are contributing to my awful case of spring fever!
