Spring Red Tulip 92/365 Project

My first tulip has bloomed!  I used a new free action from MCP actions to add the texture to this image.  Although I can add the textures manually, I feel like this action shortens my editing by a few steps.  I wanted the red to pop so I used a layer mask to erase some of the texture off the flower.  I think I might have found the sweet spot of my 50mm lens.  It appears to be at its sharpest at f2.2 aperture especially at a closer focal range.  I also took a Polaroid of this flower which I will post when it has dried enough to scan.  I went through my box of Polaroids and have decided I might mat and frame them to sell on etsy.  After all, what good are they just sitting in a box and not being enjoyed?  I need to figure out the best way to present them in the coming days.  Yet another project.
