The last few Poppy stragglers on the edge of a farmers field, from a couple of weeks ago.......

The shot is with a Samyang 8mm fish-eye, with the nearest Poppy about 3" in front of the lens.......I wanted a strong
'presence' of the Poppies, but retain the sky/clouds with the backlighting from the sun......hope you like.......Grin

Thanks everyone for the C&C's on 'Hartsop in Patterdale', & to Martin & Robert for the UA's......well appreciated !!!!!

think it works really well the closeness of the poppies with the sky in the background makes for a striking imageSmile

Great use of fish-eye lens emphasizing the beauty of these lovely poppies.
The lens gives a lovely rounded effect to the whole image.

Now this is exactly how a fisheye should be used, Keith. An obvious effect without being overdone. Excellently taken and composed to bring out the best of the main subject without losing any of the impact created by the sky.
