V1 for me too Lillian. As Joline suggested I'd clone out the rogue poppy left of frame on the white board, it just cleans up the background lines . A very minor point, love the graphic qualities of the background against the random cheerfulness of the poppies. This would look good on canvas to bring cheer on dull drab winter days.

It's good to see them against a different background from the normal fields. I agree v3 is better with that crop but a true find.
