Natural landscapes: standing out

YELLOW TULIP, BUTCHART GARDENS, BRITISH COLUMBIA

While touring this stunning this 55-acre National Historic Site on Canada’s west coast, I spotted this yellow-green combination and figured it would make a good photograph. One key was keeping any distracting highlight out of the background. The other key was depth of field – have enough so you could make out the background without it becoming distracting. How did I do? Nikon D90, 70-300 mm. zoom lens.
