More tulips! Nice. I like the composition, especially the windmill. The blur might bug some folks but I think it works pretty well. Good submission. Keep 'em coming.

That's beautiful. I installed Windows 7 yesterday, and was looking for wallpapers. This one comes in at the right time! Thanks.

What a creamy bokeh! What lense/settings did you use for this shot?

Tulips....Déjà vu!
BtW., i knew that Holland is famous by Tulips, but what I didn't know is that you have a festival for that... Awesome!

Normally I`m not drawn to the flower pics but in this case there's something magical about it and it looks great on the desk top so thanks for this happy submission.

@Macindows: the shot has been taken with D80 and Nikkor 24-70 at F/5.6, 1/640 exposure; thank you all for the comments.

Beautiful photo; almost looks too amazing to be real!

The only thing that I am still on the fence about is the exposure: I would have liked to see it with a slightly faster exposure, as the yellow tulips in the foreground are a tad too bright for me. This is more personal than technical, because it is still a fantastic image!

Just like Macindows' last submission, this one is just as beautiful. I love the colors, and I love tulips. Thank you!

I would prefer it on focus, as I said in many comments on IFL :P..anyway I really like it..all those colors are amazing. It's a pity that the windmill is so blurry :P

Macindows: whoa, you're right. I just looked a little more closely and I finally noticed how smooth and soft the blur, or bokeh is. I've seen a few bokeh shots on here, but there's something special about this one. In some, the blur tends to make my eyes nearly water or something, but this one doesn't. This blurriness is attractive, especially in those red tulips.

Hi Northrop. Thanks for the second batch of tulips. You can't miss with one of nature's simplest and most beautiful creations. I must, however, agree with Lerch about blur. The tulips are very bright, striking and sit in the very near foreground. Consequently I look further back in the image for some moderating subject matter. My eye is drawn to the windmill and rests there. Unfortunately the windmill is far too out of focus to give comfort. Windmills as well as tulips are emblematic of the Netherlands and I think subliminally demand the eye's attention. Their being more in focus would reinforce the image in my humble opinion. Keep on shooting and I'll keep on blathering!

This somehow is a bit disturbing for me, living in the Netherlands. Something about nationalism I guess.

Photo is pretty great though, looks almost surreal.

There's a place in Michigan called Holland? I didn't know that, wich is rather ironic since I live in Holland (the actual one in Europe). I think this is a great shot, just like your other post, so keep it up. :)

Being a displaced Michigander, I have been searching the site every week hoping for pictures of flowers from home. Thanks for the little bit of spring nostalgia. A beautiful capture of our Dutch coast!
