When I first noticed this poppy it was still in bud, but I loved the creased petals after it had just unfurled.

A quite remarkable and certainly inspiring image, which certainly sets the benchmark in this type of photographic genre.

SUPERB macro shot of this beautifully toned poppy, the detail excellent, and the bloom so beautifully lit.

I always think of the poppy's crown as looking like a fondant sweetTongue!
I like the way you have used the little opening in the petals to focus upon the centre. This poppy is a beautiful colour, the light is excellent, and has given you a wonderful shadow at the bottom, making the stamens look like dancing ladies in silhouette.
