The flowers aren't out of focus, as stated the exposure was deliberately brought down to introduce movement into the foreground...perhaps not everyone's cup of tea, I personally like to see a sense of movement in photos...It would be interesting to hear other people opinions of this. I do agree Paul that it does not look sharp on here, I cannot understand why, as it is a pin sharp image - perhaps it is due to it having been resized when I posted it?
thank you everyone, I must say I wish I had found this site sooner, it really is great Paul, I don't have one with a single flower, to get the composition I was looking for I had to include a bunch of them, maybe that's one for next year! My only quibble with this is I wish I had got this composition, but two weeks later when all the flowers were in bloom (as in the other shot) However I was massively rushed and couldn't...I did intend to return again, but the weather turned and by the time I got my chance the delicate flowers had been all but ruined by the incessant wind and rain - another lovely English summer
thanks, I will be sure to try that...I have tried altering the white balance in RAW conversion, but it is way too strong to do anything about...
Thanks for the kind words, this is my first upload on here so it's nice to get some good feedback. Frank, I did indeed use a tripod - how else do you shoot landscapes?! Unfortunately it was a rushed shot, I literally had about one minute to get setup - I had returned here to try again for more flowers, but the sky didn't look promising, so we ended up in the pub...the dog got his walk, and then this happened...I'm sure you all know that panicked feeling!!! I will post a previous shot, but with less poppies, where I spent time on the composition. Cheers x
