Tulip - Leader of the Pack

Just playing with depth of field on this one....basically sooc except for a bit of highlight and shadowing. Sometimes a tulip is just a tulip.......
Looks like he's waving to the others...or leading the charge. Wonderful use of a shallow depth of field here!

@runner365 I thought of Stein's quote...and also " a cigar is sometimes just a cigar"...not sure of the source but definitely Freudian interpretation...lol.

@kwind An honor to be in such good tulip company as your shot!

Very good result. The shallow DOF is great.. echoes of the main flower without causing distraction. Keep playing, I say!
