Gorgeous reds on the flower heads and I love the muted reflection in the 'spilt' water

Very nice composition and application of the rule of thirds although I would have liked to see the top of the tulip on the right

I love the capture of the petal edge

Seems people don't like tulips. I think they are great and captured an interesting depiction here where you have the one smooshed under the glass and the one okay in the glass.

Very clever title! All my tulips are gone now, but I did shoot a bunch of them. Can't help it, can you? I mean there they are, just begging to be subjects!

this is a lovely composition... on the third look I find the focus, colors and shapes amazing :) beautiful glass! the white (bubbles?) are a tiny bit distracting but the shadows are beautiful...

I've looked at your image three times before voting. Overall I like it. The colors of the flowers against the black background and the reflections. I think my issue is the business of the upper left vs. the simplicity of the lower right. My eyes keep darting back to the glass, when I like the bud better.

I wishe the other tulip hadn't been partially cropped! I think it would have made a better comparison for the squahed one if it were whole.

A bit dark, but I give you credit for originality!

Nice photo. I am somewhat confused as how a vase tipping over can land on top of the tulip, but we will call it artistic license.

Effective and simple. And an easy title. Would have like a bit more detail in the dark areas.

I like this, and it seem a shame to have the tulip cropped at the right. 6
