Flower Photo Competition 1 2019 : Entry Number 51

Judges Comment

Beautiful and exotic, how the photographer of this image chose showing this tulip. This flower is past its prime days, and this is what gives this photo great atmosphere and a sense of decay. The dark background makes the observer focus on the actual flower, no unnecessary distraction here.

Thanks so much for the selection - much appreciated! I was in the back yard of a friend's vacant house which had minimal landscaping done other than cut grass. This lone beauty was still standing tall albeit on it's last legs - nothing else around it! I begged for forgiveness later (haha!) but plucked this gem to take home with me!
