I know, there have been a lot of tulip photos around recently... it's not really surprising since they are such lovely spring flowers. They are certainly my favorite spring flower, especially if they come in my favorite color, orange.
I bought these ones at Trader Joe's not only because they are orange but also because they are California grown. It's even better that they come from my state!
I first cropped the photo in Lightroom and did some very minor changes. Then I added a texture in PSE, "kk_january7grunge". I applied it in blending mode vivid light at 100% and then brushed away the texture from the flowers, vase, bird and wood, not being too precise, followed by a levels adjustment on the texture only. I do like how the color pops!
