  1. Oh my gosh, Clyde. Nice job on getting the dew drops on the tulips. Very pretty and fresh looking! Smiles, Maria from Seattle.

    1. Thanks, Maria. But the drops were real. They seem to work better too. I used a small on-cam flash and had no idea how it would enhance the wet look. C.

  2. I just realized that the last photo is a black and white of the first photo....all the same tulip. Nice idea. Black and white is very romantic. Smiles, Maria from Seattle

  3. I did the B&W first, trying several methods of filtering before converting. I think the examples of each are in my FB album.!/media/set/?set=a.378365378864075.93892.123815644319051&type=3
