Trying to take pictures of flowers that are different from most other pictures of flowers is a lot tougher than it would seem.
Flowers are works of art all on their own, so unless you are adding interest to a flower photo, your flower shots might feel a bit bland.
I like this shot I took last year at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival just south of Portland because it wasn't like my typical flower shots. There is more context for these flowers, and you get a sense of what it is like to be in the rows.
I walked away from the festival with four shots that I felt were the strongest of the many I took, and they all had some element to them that was different than my usual shots of flower parts and color combinations.
With this knowledge I am ready for next year!
