Mar 17: Tulips in front of my sister's house. I had in mind taking some cool St. Patty's Day photos of the dinner and friends, but this batch of flowers really called to me. I knelt near them but held the camera at ground level and took a dozen shots at different angles. The original was quite washed out--the very late afternoon sky had a lot of glare, and the very-pale-pink tulips were in shade. I tweaked around with saturation and contrast and liked the surreal effect I ended up with.
