Monochrome Monday - Tulip

For this Monochrome Monday I thought it would be fun to compare the processing on one of the recent tulip pictures I took. In the spring around here there are many farms growing tulips and they all are blooming at once and turn the fields a very pretty color. If it gets nicer again I will try to get out and take some pictures of the tulips fields this year too.

For now here’s a single tulip inside in the sunlight. I processed this first picture using GIMP. There are many types of black and white film simulation to try and it is fun to see the different results.

Below is the original picture as it came out of my Galaxy S9+. I used the zoom lens on this picture.

Here’s a picture that Google Photos did some color enhancement on. It almost looks glowing to me like the flower has some internal light.

Comparing the three pictures it seems to me that the first one gives a better depth and feel for the structure of the tulip with more emphasis on the form. I think the others are interesting too in different ways.


Thanks for reading! I always value your support! Special thanks to @old-guy-photos for monochromemonday.

Beautiful Tulip flowers, I like to see all the flowers blooming. I look your post showing the colours of flowers are very bright and more beautiful. thank you for sharing the flowers with us on this beautiful day. Thanks so much @lightsplasher

I'm glad you liked the photography. Thank you much as well, I always enjoy looking at your macro photography of insects and nature. It is fun to see.

Thanks @lightsplasher
and thanks for always liking my post for a high price, I have not been able to repay your kindness. Thank you very much.

The picture quality is excellent and perfect. You took it well. I've heard tulips. Many tulips grow in Europe especially in the Netherlands Is that true? thank you dear @lightsplasher

I think they originated over there but I'm not sure. There were a lot of trading and growing of tulips in Holland and other countries in Europe. I'm really happy with the new camera the color and quality is wonderful and I'm having lots of fun with it.

I really enjoy the pictures you take with your new camera. If you visit Indonesia you probably will not find tulips But you will find a variety of other beautiful flowers

Wonderful texture on all three shots. They look like satin:)

I really like the way the camera and lens pull out the details of the texture. It sure is fun to experiment with a new camera.

It is a little like painting but without the mess to clean up:)

I like all three. I think whatever I would use would be tied to the content of the posts. So I keep a growing number of flowers, sunsets, every topic basically.

I think the different images do create somewhat different emotional responses. I could see them being useful to enhance the content of a post.

color determines the beauty of a thing, without color it feels incomplete premises beauty of the object tersebu, still flowers that have a flower color flower tersebu very beautiful, like the difference of flowers above and below that is in posta friend #lightsplasher it's flower that is under is very beautiful because it has a color that is color difference thanks

thank you,,,,

The color really is a draw for the attention. There is beauty in the form of an object too but I think it is more subtle in nature. I'm glad that we can experience all the different ways of looking at things. Perhaps a colorful flower was not the best to view in monochrome but I think it is fun to experience the contrast. Thanks.

I also think the same opinion of friends #lightsplashrer something tampa color thing seems less cool if we see, tapih with the color it looks very beautiful that is the excess color, from where I really like the post my friends because my friend loved the color thank

Just a amazing photography. You're a pretty much good photography. Your photoshoot skill was too much high. Nice to see your all photography.

**** with its visible color is very different, tampa color it looks less beautiful, still if there is a color it looks very beautiful it is the color thanks ***

I was amazed to see the beauty of your tulips @lightsplasher.

I also read about the trend of tulips, the price of tulips never broke the record of the most expensive flower prices in the Netherlands and other neighboring countries.

If in Aceh there are seeds of tulips, will plant them as well.

Because the tulips are a very beautiful flower and recognized by the world for its beauty.

Some tours from various worlds sometimes just because they want to enjoy the beauty of tulips, they are willing to spend their money and time.

My curiosity grew when brother @lightsplasherposted about this tulip flower.

Nice shot! the color is so sweet

Very nice..

beautiful flower pieces and very useful for all steemian friends thanks for a very useful post

I think the black and white version looks better and more detail than the other two. ☺️

Beautiful flowers, hopefully your days more beautiful as well.

the flowers are really charming

a very beautiful flower that is below the visible color is very beautiful

Previously I am sorry my best friend Do you like this flower my shipment

I like the details it pulls out of this shot. I have to agree with using the shot to enhance the photo (or vice versa)

I have used the same shot, edited in different ways to go with different words. I love when a picture can pull words out of my soul.

Your new phone is really working for you!

I agree with you, in the first one the emphasis it's on the form, and on the second one the emphasis it's one the color, but my favorite it's the second one! tulips, peonies and roses are definitely among my favorite flowers! :D

the picture you take is very good of course you guys take very thoroughly yes very nice using galaxy 9+ I also use galaxy j7 +
