Tulips in the polder.
I was shooting tulips in the evening and at that time there came dark and rainy clouds towards me.
Just at the right place and the right moment...

une magnifique composition, la lumière est exceptionnelle; un moment d'une grande intensité avec des contrastes entre les tulipes et le ciel sombre.

The title of your photo sums it up. It is composed.

Yep! Right place and right time but not many would have captured this scene as beautifully as you, so congratulations. It is an awesome image, full of intense symbolism and amazing light. I love it big time and wish I had been with you to capture it too!

you have caught the essence of the season, the dramatic light and the characteristic tulips – April is a great time of the year for the photographer. And what I like most is the excellent perspective. The rainbow is just the icing on the cake. My compliments!

A very beautiful picture with many dimensions. The sunshine over the yellow field is matched by the dark clouds and the rainbow is well placed in the composition.The pot of gold at the rainbow is quite visible too...

une très belle palette de couleurs avec un contraste magnifique entre le ciel et les fleurs. Une belle profondeur d'image et une lumière qui met l'ensemble en valeur.

una foto che rimane impressa nella mente per la straordinarietà della composizione e per brillantezza della luce che illumina la scena.
Colori e situazione insuperabili per una foto da manuale.
Ciao e buona serata

Magnifique lumière sur ce champ de tulipes jaunes qui contraste de belle façon avec ce ciel chargé. L'arc-en-ciel est la cerise sur le gâteau.

impressive contrast between the rows of tulips and the dark sky, the rainbow is well located balancing the perspective of the field.

This is one of those wonderful moments in photography where the weather significantly contributes to the result. Full of atmosphere and glorious colour. I also like the way that the rows of tulips converge in the distance.
Kind Regards, Ann

Het gedempte geel van de bloemen geeft de regenwolk nog meer kracht en inderdaad..... de regenboog is een cadeautje voor de fotograaf!

You were definitely lucky to capture this brilliant scene. The rows of tulips, together with the stormy sky, would have been great enough, but then there is a rainbow, too! I like the contrast between dark and light. The colors are also beautiful. It's a magical scene.

An amazing shot to be sure!
Did you get wet from that storm?
The tulip fields alone are amazing but that dramatic sky and beautiful rainbow - just superb. You have managed the light with precision.
