    OK, OK Its Tulips for Sue and Triptych ..... bet ya had to look though OK recently Sue raised a great point about where there are masses of flowers and you just can't capture the splendor of it all. some great suggestions were posted and my contribution was maybe using different images in a Triptych might show them off to their best. I couldn't find any images to use until today when I noticed the neighbours tulips were in full bloom so took a few shots and put together a Triptych using some new frames off this months Photo Mag. Suffers from the 800 pixel rule but hey rules are rules . also there are two images - the first one on my monitor looks over saturated with reds the second under saturated with reds - I'd like to know what you guys are seeing?





    OK -I couldn't resist a painted Van Gogh version of the tulips compliments of Gertrudis

    Both look undersaturated to me - but I'm on the laptop - I'll look again when I get the thing docked to a proper monitor.

    Gosh George. I'm not sure where to begin with my comments, you've raise several points........

    First of all, is there supposed to be an "action" for putting together the triptych? Should I do a google search or are you going to point me in the right direction?

    Secondly, on my computer both images look remarkedly similiar in color with the second one appearing ever so slightly more orangish...that leads me to........

    Third; HORRORS! All I have is a laptop. period. So, if a laptop affects what I'm viewing I'm in serious trouble. It is, however, the largest screen available for a laptop, but no wonder my images look "off" to you "big dogs."

    Thanks for putting together this triptych example. I think I would like to give it a try.

    I also really, really like the "Van Gogh" look on the tulip. Very effective use of "manipulation."

    Sue I have just amended my monitor setting AGAIN and now they do look similar - does my head in this colour management thing.

    As for the Triptych the tutorial is for a single frame but I just make the canvas 3 x wider in photoshop and duplicate the layers - I will get some instructions to you - in fact I have the tutorial and some proper 3 x frame triptychs - I'll go dig that out

    I totally love the Van Gogh-esque one! what filter/setting did you use to create that one? I'd love to make my mom something like that for mothers day

    The color looks more orangy to me George.

    Really like the look of the triptych. I agee with comments about the undersaturated orangish image and I'm looking on a desktop monitor. Congratulations George, you've figured out how to get 15 images per post.

    Triptych sounds like a good photo contest subject. But, would not have to be limited to Church related photos, per the definition below.

    According to Wikipedia:

    A triptych (pronounced "trip-tick" IPA: [ trip'tik] (or US: [ 'tɹʷɪp.dɪk ]) from the Greek τρίπτυχο [ tri'ptu.xo ] tri- "three" + ptychē "fold") is a work of art (usually a panel painting) which is divided into three sections, or three carved panels which are hinged together and folded. The middle panel is the larger one and is flanked by two smaller, but related, works.

    The triptych form arises from early Christian art, and was the standard format for altar paintings from the Middle Ages onwards. Its geographical range was from the eastern Byzantine churches throughout to the English Celtic church in the west. Renaissance painters and sculptors such as Hans Memling and Hieronymus Bosch used the form.

    Altarpieces in churches and cathedrals, both in Europe and elsewhere, since the Gothic period were often in triptych-form. One such cathedral with an altarpiece triptych is Llandaff Cathedral. The Cathedral of Our Lady in Antwerp, Belgium contains two examples by Rubens and Notre Dame de Paris is an example of the use of triptych in architecture. One can also see the form echoed by the structure of many ecclesiastical stained glass windows. The triptych form has since influenced contemporary painters and art photographers whose triptych don't always hinge.

    While the root of the word is the ancient Greek "triptychos", the word arose into the medieval period from the name for an Ancient Roman writing tablet, which had two hinged panels flanking a central one. The form can also be used for pendant jewelry.
