Backlit Redheads ...

... of the flora and fauna variety Wink

More traditional composition to the previous uploads but continuing the shallower depth-of-field 'theme' with this one.

Nearly weekend folks ... enjoy Smile

Lovely shot.
I like the way you've kept enough detail in shadows while producing nice warm, dark and rich tones with a beautiful backlight.

A fine composition with such good and effective use of backlighting: wide aperture has concentrated one's attention of the poppies, the main focal point of the shot.

The crispness of the FG is excellent Paul, but then I would expect nothing less Wink Not quite so much of the flake moment feeling with this though and I do like a bit of overpriced rubbish chocolate now and then.
