Good effort, Rachel.

The red seems to be a wee bit too saturated, though. If you desaturated it slightly, the detail on the petals would come out. Just a thought. Still a beaut.

Hi Rachel, I like your poppy but tend to agree with Chiliman but it's still a beautiful shot.

Best wishes

Great vibrant red as Andrew says maybe a bit too much, but stands out well anyway.

Beautiful detail. And I wouldn't worry about the colour. Poppies come in numerous shades of poppy red.
