When working with your subjects, do not leave any perspective untried. The back of flowers is often very beautiful - as is the case with this tulip.

Apple Tree Flowers Apple Tree Flowers
Apples trees are beautiful when in full bloom. However, capturing attractive pictures of them is somewhat challenging.
