Acknowledgment to my dear Flavia for watching over our son during my tulip photo session, and for borrowing me the tulip from the bouquet that I gave her the previous evening ( and you thought that I bought them just for shooting purposes, didn't you?! ;).
Thank you all very much for many nice comments and good score! When I submitted my photo I didn't expect it to do so well. At first I didn't get the result I wanted so I thougt of giving up this challenge all together. But then I decided to give it an other chance and started playing the light and reflector, and after several more shots I was much happier and decided to compete.

To Ja-9: there are really no secrets, I just used natural window light with the reflector, then in Camera Raw I played with different settings and adjustments, like Clarity, Sharpness, Adjustment brush, Hue and Saturation along with the usual Exposure adjustments. It was nice to be conused with you in this challenge, as I always admired your orange roses. Your PP was fantastic. Any secrets there?

Nicely controlled lighting and good clarity. Very good detail in the tulip petals.
