Still Loving This Flower Photo...

I posted this image here in 2010, but I can't help reposting it. I still love this shot! I've been in a flower-shooting mood lately... maybe it's the warmer weather and the thought of Spring.

I've Got Tulips...

I bought some tulips the other day. They looked so rich and colorful, so I decided to play around and take some photographs with one of my homemade/DIY lens systems that I've attached to my Canon EOS 5DmkII. The lens was featured in a previous post right here, if you want to know more about it.

Really?!? Of all the thousands of images you have access to, these are your top 25 shots? Let me break it down for you, because they aren't all bad. I see about five really awesome photos, ten really nice images and another ten that wouldn't even make my top one hundred list... maybe not even my top one thousand! Maybe I missed the disclaimer that said "This list was compiled by our intern".
