Too many of them. For this to work well you need one bloom larger than the rest, suitable positioned and pin sharp with all the rest well and truly blurred whilst still just recogniseable.
Hello, John. I love to see a field of poppies, there aren't many about these days. I feel you needed a smaller aperture to get your chosen foreground poppies all in focus, or alternatively a larger aperture to isolate just one or two of them and have the rest out of focus, which would also give you a faster shutter speed in case of movement. The out of focus one that's almost in the centre at the bottom keeps taking my attention, which is a shame because those that ARE in focus are quite nice, and the seed heads as well. I know you have to contend with even a slight breeze moving your subject as well, so it's not easy. I have done a modification where I cropped the left side so that the tallest flowers were along the left frame edge, then I removed a few small distracting bits of poppy, selectively sharpened those in focus and slightly desaturated those in the background, just to try and make the foreground ones stand prouder from the rest.
Thanks Pamela - I agree with you and I really like the mod.
