I went to Keukenhof not expecting to get the perfect subject for a rule of the third challenge. I took a few pictures and it was a close call between a few of them. I chose this one because of the perfect separation of colors.

- White balance and exposure settings
- Played with saturation
- Some curving
- Increased the contrast

Greetings from the Critique Club.

Technically this is a good picture, Nice change from color to color.
The tulips are just a little over exposed and lost a some of the petal detail.
It is a nice sharp picture.

I can not say that this has the WOW factor we all talk about but it is a nice picture

Keep up the good work
Best of luck

Cleverly divided into three parts but still, something missing for me to give a higher rating than 5, apart from the division the composion is not guiding my eye towards any one point and frankly I don´t find this image very interesting, I think you can do better.

Like everything about this image except the white blotches on the yellow tulips.

Wonderful composition and color! I love your expression of the 3rds. 10 - To bad the tips of some of the tulips are blown out..that is why I took .5 off your 10...good thing I round up huh?
