Last spring I posted photos from the Ottawa Tulip Festival at Dow’s Lake. The tulips were a bit late so they were not fully opened and I promised at the time to revisit. But stuff happens and I took an unscheduled break. This post is a teaser from a second visit that I will post soon. (Hopefully no unscheduled breaks…fingers crossed.) I thought I would post this grouping separately and hopefully leave you wanting more. I don’t usually do this when processing a picture but I thought I’d share and get your thoughts. These tulips are quite spectacular but the original composition wasn’t working for me. So I decided to crop the image. I soon realized that I might salvage two separate compositions from the original. Make no mistake, when I compose a shot, I try to fill the frame with only one composition. I duplicated the original and cropped what I considered to be two working arrangements.
Again the first image is my favourite, the second is the original and the last is the second or remaining composition. Do you have a favourite or do they both work?
