All pictures Leica M and Noctilux wide open with an ND filter.  Raw conversion in LR4, sharpening in Nik Sharpener Pro 3, and then some fooling around in either Viveza or Color Efex Pro 4.  As always, click on the photos, especially if you are reading this on an iPad with Retina Display, to get the fullest sense of the image.

It has been our experience that if you want to find the tulips in frenzy, you need to head to Dumbarton Oaks. Now some may remember that we love Dumbarton Oaks in the autumn for the way it can can be rendered in black and white, as we did last fall with the Leica Monochrom.  But if you really want to find the tulips at their most colorful, especially in what seems to be a bit of an off year, you have to go to the Oaks…

We found them in full riot, though importantly, only in those portions of the garden that got lots of sunlight.

Where they were bright, they were very, very bright.  And we found ourselves drawn to the cooler parts of the garden, which are just now coming alive.
