Tulips on Super Bowl Sunday

Post by RBorud » Sun Feb 04, 2018 7:34 pm

I just looked at the UHH incoming and saw some are already showing tulips. My word here we are hunkering down to watch an increase to the Twin-Cities population of some 20% for people to see a double hyperploid object being thrown back and forth and have their brains scrambled a bit, and its -2 degrees outside. Only solution to go to a corner market buy some tulips and say we can do it even under these conditions. As you can see I know little or nothing about football. I do hope some of you will like the tulips however, thanks for looking. RBorud

Love the tulips and the lighting you used to illuminate them. Lovely way to celebrate Super Bowl Sunday, with a bowl of tulips.

I shall have a bowl of Red Beans and Rice instead of football. I have some interest in sports as a defensive result of raising three very athletic sons, but neither of these teams interests me, and in recent years the ads haven't been quite as much fun as they used to be. I'll check a few of those out later.

Gorgeous light and color! I plan to watch the game 7 World Series re-run on MLB Network :) And though I'm from New England originally, I was over the Patriots after those under-inflated balls were discovered during a playoff game a few years back.

And like Minnie mentions, the clever ads seem to have all but disappeared (anyone remember the cat herders?!).

minnieve thanks for your comment. The lighting was very easy just one flash above, left, and behind the flowers. A tiny bit under exposed and voila! Thanks for looking. RBorud

Linda Thanks for your thoughts and comments. Like I told minneieve the light was a single flash above, left and behind the tulips.Really easy. Also a tiny bit underexposed. Perhaps the ball should have been pancake flat. Thanks for looking. RBorud

Very nicely done RB, and I realize this is not critique.....but wonder if you'd consider a horizontal flip.....

Thanks Psjunkie for looking and commenting. I tried your suggestion and I realized I remained ambivalent. I being a lefthander I do tend to read images left to right. Despite what I am saying, there is nothing wrong with what you suggest, it is probably good either way.
Thanks RBorud
