I went to the Skagit Valley to check on the tulips and found none. However, the daffodils were in full bloom and looking gorgeous. I am going back in a couple of weeks and see what's up with the tulips. 3 exposures blended together manually in photoshop for maximum dynamic range. Many different steps and techniques used to process this image in Photoshop. I created a HDR tutorial and it's available in my website: www.howard-snyder.com Go have a look!
