The landscaping designs in the vast Butchart Gardens near Victoria,British Columbia offer an amazing variety of isolated vistas to stimulate one's imagination.At this particular stop, I was fascinated by the stream-like flow of blooming cinerairia cascading into a bed of passion-red tulips with an under-seeding of Forget-Me-Nots(myosotis sylvatica).
Shot in a lower-resolution option,I have tried to compensate for the lack of clarity by boosting the contrast and saturation of the foreground tulips.

That's a nice colorful picture, although I find that the roses are too red...
Otherwise, considering the content itself it's really nice.

Composition (both the garden and the photograph) is very pleasing and calming even with the intense red tulips. Like you said, the plant arrangement is quite terrific - they really know what they are doing.
As for the technical, I do understand your predicament. Up until I joined TE, I have been taking pictures in lower resolution mode (my philosophy then was as I don't use the pictures for printing, the more pictures that will fit in the smart media card, the better - little did I know that I will stumble upon TE later and am faced with the low resolution dilemma). Your effort to improve what you have though is valiant and a learning experience for everyone.

well considering, it is a good composition with super colors, I like framing.

I understand your pleasure in front of these tulips. It is a beautiful classification and flowers to the left add to the impact of this flowerbed. Beautiful colours and well composed image.
Je comprends votre plaisir devant ces tulipes. C'est un bel arrangement et les fleurs à gauche ajoutent à l'impact de cette plate-bande. Belles couleurs et image bien composée.

Marvellus combination of the colours. I like the tree trunk in the middle of flowers. Seems like that the rock offers the shelter to the flowers. The tulips are just beautiful.

Quelle jolie palette de couleurs un joli jardin a contempler et ce tron au milieu rend la composition bien fini .
