Macro SOOC petals...

I adore tulips...they are so happy and a unique shape...but I always struggle shooting them. I don't know why, but I am never fully happy with what I get. Today I visited Michelle at 'Snapshots by Michelle' to see what she was entering for the Shoot & Edit with Ashley Sisk this week. Well, she WOWED me with her gorgeous SOOC shots of rose & tulip petals - go check them out HERE! So I promptly picked all the petals off one of my lovely tulips and attempted to shoot a SOOC with no editing afterwards - well I failed at the SOOC no editing part (I really think I am addicted to Photoshop), but I did gain a whole new appreciation for tulip petals. Thanks Michelle for the inspiration!
