Portfolio Book Image: Tulips

Added on by J.D. Magers.

This image was taken way back in 2008 before I really new what I was doing.  This was in Spring time on the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder.  Their little flower planters were packed with tulips.  I remember having just purchased my 50mm f/1.8.  I believe this was one of the first images I took with that lens.  I think what really appeals to me here is the strong red/green color vibration.  Color theory says these two colors together are supposed to be pleasing to the eye.  You can't really argue here.  Add in a little splash of purple, and a real shallow depth of field, and I think we really have something here.
