I haven't had much chance yet to use my brand-new 50mm 1.8 on people, except for a very uncooperative ham-it-up Eva yesterday afternoon LOL....but I briefly used it with macro for some of my newly-opened tulips yesterday. Here's my favorite.
1/500, F/4, ISO 100, 50mm, cropped and resized, no other PP. Maybe it could use a little sharpening for web....I usually do that when at home but I downloaded this one while at work.

absolutely LOVELY!!! I love tulips and this is just so pretty!
Thank you both!! Sadie, I sure hope so! haha. Gigi, I just started getting into tulips a few years ago and with so many varieties they are addicting! Just like daylilies! Unfortunately the deer also love most of mine so this is the only Snowfire that has bloomed as of now despite my planting a small bagful last fall
Here is the pic sharpened at Flickr:
I like flower images vertical rather than horizontal. Get that looong stem inthe picture and it really changes the perspective.
Yes well unfortunately these tulips are blooming on only a couple inches of stem thanks to the deer. and this particular one is growing amongst a patch of yarrow leaves as well as being short already.
cool tulip! sucks about the deer though, as I like Stacey's suggestion.

OK I managed to get some "stem" vertical shots of a couple tulips, short as they are....so I figured I'd post them here too....
These shots seem too dark to me so I might work on them a little more. *EDIT* I replaced them with SLIGHTLY brightened copies lol. The color of the 2nd one seems wonky to me but I tried WB correction 2x and it didn't help....
