I pulled into the tulip fields tonight 04/26 at 8:00 with the light already almost gone. I had time to compose just a few shots, here is what I got.

What are the elements that make this image compelling? Please state in the comments to help everyone grow their talent.

Thanks for viewing! Wanna get one?

    Wow, where to start- the colors, the way the yellow splashes on the barn contrast with the tulips, the boy centered in the doorway, the light, the whole thing is amazing. I'm jealous. :)

    Fantastic composition. The brighter tulips in the front draw your eyes back as the tulips get darker and darker, then to the boy, then they follow the yellow on the barn all the way to the end... Spectacular!

    Wonderful Capture, well done!! Love the pink and the child and the small color in the barn!

    The colors of the barn, the contrast with the boy's shirt and the darker layer of flowers at the end all make it what it is. The foreground is great but it is the back off the picture that makes it and shows off the foreground with a deeper richness than just the foreground alone, in my opinion. Great!

    I just moved back to Texas after living in the greater Seattle area. Your shots sure make me miss it there. Tulip time was always a favorite. This is a great shot.

  • Nadeem Shafi

    Nadeem Shafi gave props (26 Apr 2011):

    I particularly like how the color continues from the tulip field onto the barn, and how the old barn appears off-balance in an otherwise ordered frame. Great work.
