poppy field

By pluckyfilly
Those of you that follow my uploads will know how long I have sought and prayed for a field of poppies, well at the weekend and not far from home minus camera of course (but it was raining anyway) I found this field, not a completel field but where the farmer infills the edge for wildlife and I thought this made rather a nice display. I went out early this morning and took a few piccies, might go back again see if I can better what I already haveWink

Many thanks for all c/c's on my recent butterfly upload, I am most grateful

What a display of poppies, Ann: certainly a place that cries out to be revisited. I notice you have a touch of corner vignetting which could easily be cloned out: then on second thoughts a crop to more of a letter box format might also make for a more dramatic image, taking off 1/3 of the sky and with the lower margin at the foot of the darker patch below the biggest f/g poppies. Just a thought, and I hope this does not offend.

Lovely shot !....what a glorious find, go back & just let yourself go !!!!!.....the possibilities are endless, get those creative juices going !!!!.Grin
Wade out through the white daisies till you get to the poppies and get the camera close to them too, with that many [p[[ies you're on a winner Ann, magical find.

Do you remember this one?

Looks lovely Ann - I like the way the whites interact with the reds personally - as has been said it's worth going back for more.

Ann, I like you found a field of Poppies, and did not have a camera with me, but I could never get
back to take a Photo, so thanks for showing me yours. Eric.

Really beautiful, Ann, wonderful image with super depth to it. Love it. Poppies are so wonderfully delicate; when they are out 'en masse' like here they are a treat to see.

1 Jun 2011 11:48PM last your OWN field to exlpore.
Watch out before you "go wading in" ...the farmer might not like it.

I like the white mixed in with the vivid Red it a good contrast.
