|The tulip, or "Laleh" as it's called in Persian, is a flower indigenous to Iran, Afghanistan, Turkey and other parts of Central Asia.|
After introduction of the Tulip to Europe, it gained much popularity and was seen as a sign of abundance and indulgence in the Ottoman Empire. The era which the Ottoman Empire was wealthiest is called the Tulip era, or Lale Devri in Turkish.

I like the back lighting of this 'laleh'
The green, red and yellow colors really pop out.
Thank you for this beautifully executed tulip exposure and for an eye-pleasing composition Atalay, great achievement my friend!

Artistic shot for our eyes pleasure !
The "+++" : composition, nice subject, POV, sharpness, DOF, blurred dark BG, contrast on BG, exposure, useful complementary note...
The "-" : perhaps a little too centered...
Congratulations and thanks for sharing,
