Clever title for a blog post featuring an image of red tulips isn’t it? Ok, if I am going to be totally honest I really couldn’t think of anything other than “red tulips” to title a post that features a close up image of red tulips. Now that I think about it, this post might do OK if someone is doing a web search for red tulips. :-)

I made this image last week while visiting the DeGoede Bulb Farm down in Mossyrock, WA.  For those who care, I shot it with one of my Sony a6000 bodies and used my Sony 70-200 f4 G lens.  I then used the new On1 Photo 10 to bring out some detail, add some dynamic contrast and boost the reds and greens.  For those that follow me, you probably know that I have been a fan of, and at times a beta tester for, the On1 products going back a number of versions.  The new version 10 of the package is no exception, in fact it might be their best release yet.  The folks over at On1 have been doing a great job of brining a number of great apps together into a more complete photo editing package.  I do have plans to post some workflow videos of how I used the On1 software.

That’s it for today.  I hope that you enjoy this image, and as always, please click through to see a larger version as well as other images from my Macro and Still life gallery.
