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.
