Corn, field or Flanders poppy. This one is orange, not red and self-seeds every year. I think it is an escapee from a packet of variety Angels Choir I once sowed though none of the fancy ones came up. Isn't that just the way?! I see Thompson and Morgan offer a pure white variety which is tempting for next year.
It was a devil to photograph because even on the stillest day when every other plant seems static, these long-stemmed, femmer (Geordie word meaning fragile, delicate) poppies would insist on swaying about.

Like the central details and textures in the flowers, V2 comp works well.

I second Richard's comments. The dof is excellent, the stubborn frailty of the petals is well expressed.

V2 works better for me, it's the arrangement of three items, two flowers plus bud. Simplicity is strength. V1 has extra buds interloping in the background and that complicates matters.

I like the more subtle colours of V1 but for me the composition in V2 does the trick Fiona.
