I noticed that the gardens of Keukenhof see much more attractive for foreigners than for the Dutch themselves. The views of tulips filed are much more appreciated than the views from Keukenhof. Some TE members living nearby even have never been there. Well, tulip fields you can have for free. But visiting the gardens is imho worth every euro cent (a combi ticket - bus to and from Schiphol and entrance costs 18 euro). The gardens are open only in two months in a year. So there is no need to plant other flowers instead of the bulbs. I can imagine how many people are planning the flower arrangement and how much work is needed to plant and maintain the garden. I haven't seen even one flower that was not in the best moment of blossoming. It seems that you are just in the best time. I do not know how they achieve it. It was my long time dream to go there and I was so happy to go there in sunny day.
Isn't it the enchanted forest?

Hello MAlgorzata ,
Not a wild forest , but , indeed , a enchanted one . It must be a great pleasure to have a walk there . And , even your picture is excellent , it must be yet most beautiful in the reality .

It does look like an awesome place to visit indeed. I like the perspective you chose, with all the tulips on the foreground, but the image seems to be a little bit out of focus, or at least some more sharpness would be nice. Thanks for sharing!

Sharpness is more than adequate here imho. I uploaded a similar wide angled shot on TL of cherry blossom, & some folks were a bit disappointed that they couldn't really see the detail visible in a close up macro shot.
They were happy when I posted this
Looking at the big picture the repetition of the colourful tulips is superb. A little bit of red lens flare above the water. Sometimes I clone them out, & sometimes I don't. Tfs!

This looks a wondrous spot to visit, and interesting that they only for the tulip season.
The people you allowed into your shot makes for a nice touch and a sense of scale, and purpose.
( for me, the sharpness debate is slightly academic, it is what it is, but if forced to choose, a little more focus to the foreground would set it off a treat. )
But TE is learning about the world, and I learned something new today, Malgo ..

Une très belle image qui fait très printanière. Les couleurs sont magnifiques et le ruisseau offre une très belle profondeur à l'image.

Hello dear Malgorzata !
In my opinion it's sharp enough !!
I do not believe that terminoligies like sharpness etc does belong to the jargon of contemporary photography.
What it counts is, pov, compo, layou and light.
And those are here "topclass" !
TFS and best regards

This is like a fairy tale with this forest looking really enchanting with beautiful light and shades. The foreground flowers are amazing with dreamy tall trees in the background.
Excellent composition with the inclusion of water featured in the frame.
Have a nice day and kind regards.

I totally agree with the title, Malgo, enchanting it is.
The tulips in several colors, and the depth onto the creek and through trees is most cheerful and vivid, in beautiful image.
SWEETFREEDOM (19970) 2012-05-11 11:49
in this places is beautiful to see flowers from different p.o.v., behind or against the sun you have interesting sights.
for a tulip's lover like me i can only enjoy this shot.
