  2. Sally says it’s Ginormous as well as beautiful, did you find it growing at the top of Jacks Beanstalk. Fee Fi Fo Fum Giants are on guard when the tulips come.

  7. Interesting shape of the tulip – did you use a filter over this? It certainly works to give a warm glow.

    • The basic processing was done in Lightroom using the Yesteryear preset with a bit of tweaking. I added a light vignette to highlight the tulip and oversharpened the image. Then using an inverted mask I slowly brought back the glow to only the tulip leaving the background less sharpened.
