I created this one this time last year, after seeing the single poppy in the field nearby...reposted for today.....
Till the going down of the sun - we must...
They will never grow old !
They died for us.
I would prefer a colour background - either red poppies or green (grass) - but for me not keen on the combination of red and grey.
I like the image of the poppy - not sure about the red flecks and - a minor thing - think I'd prefer 'cannot' instead of 'can't' on the bottom.
Nice idea though, and glad to see it today.
Like the writing. I don't like the overall picture. The flower doesn't look like a poppy and the bg is a bit dull. I'm not sure if this is what you were trying to convey. If so, then ignore my comments. John
The red flecks were an attempt to create the explosion of the poppy with the newly cretaed bullet hole, similar to blood splattering, as well as the dripping lettering at the top.
The B&W background was for the WW1 Images which are mostly in B&W and to highlight the Poppy colour.
Thanks for the ideas though.
good idea for an image and nice sentiment too for the war heroes
either soften the focus of the background more so the text and poppy stand out more or still using a black and white photo use a sharper one that shows b&w poppy field.
use a darker toned red for the text and poppy - put a drop shadow on the text and possibly bevel it too and an inch thick dark gray bar behind the top and bottom text with about 80 or 90% opacity - setting the grey bars to "soft light" or "opacity" blend mode.
the poppy with blood drips is good idea but maybe make the poppy bigger so it increases the impact of it's presence.
either a white 10 pixel wide frame or black with 1 pixel white line to hold everything together.
great idea and worthy of more praise
