A poppy field in Dorset just three days ago.
Who can resist a sight like this? It was a chance find as I was on my way home from an indulgent afternoon of photography.
I struggled to isolate the campion flowers against the poppies, (just not quite tall enough) but they looked so good I had to try.
Allthough I've ticked digital manipulation the only bit that's manipulated is the presentation.

Yes fantastic presentation and a brilliant way of isolating the smaller flowers in amongst the miriad of poppies.
Works well for me.

Thanks Paul but not sure about your frame comment the campion flowers were taken against the poppies in camera. I was having difficulty because being short I couldn't get the camera position just right.
Now I've thought about it I have two better ways of doing it, by using steps or putting the camera on a monopod ,use live view and remote.
I'm determined to have another go at it.
Also need to stop the wind blowing.Smile

Thanks.
It was the field behind Poundbury on the Martinstown Road. It started as a field of rape & has all been cut down now.
