These beautiful Blue Meconopsis (poppies) have just unfurled in my garden. I just love the delicate pattern in the petals as well as that gorgeous blue. Unfortunately there was a slight breeze so I had to up the ISO in order to get a fast enough speed to capture this macro image .Ann.

Have toned down the highlights in V2 but not sure if this has improved things?

A good abstract using a close up of the petals. Toning down the highlights has had the effect of increasing the colour density, which I think has helped the l/h petal, but has lost a little detail in the r/h petal. It's a very delicate adjustment and one of a personal preference. Maybe a third image with the adjustment applied to the l/h petal only. You won't please all the people all of the time. But both images are very good in their own right.Smile

Beautifully subtle blues, delicate detail in these so fragile leaves.
I wonder if you have one with more of the wonderful diagonal running across the frame.

I've neve seen one of these in Scotland.
