All the poppies I planted turned out to be purple this year. Pretty to look at but not easy to photograph. This is the best I have managed so far.

Thank you to all who viewed, voted and commented on 'Floating' with special thanks to David and Jenn for their awards.

Rich colour - purple poppies would be lovely.
Strange how different colours are more difficult to capture.
Let us know how you tackle it.

This is really lovely Phil, nicely detailed and enhanced by the light playing on the petals.

Looks lovely as presented, a little tweaking in your software would be justified if you really want the true to life colour.Smile
