Dale M Reid
"Parrot Tulip #2"
This is a silver gelatin print. The picture was created in 2011. What attracted me to the parrot tulip was the unique shape and the detail on the flower pedals. This shot was at full bloom and was taken close-up. In the darkroom, I had to balance the burning to bring out the detail and not to maintain the richness of the whites.
