hi, the idea is sound and the near mono bg contrasts well with the poppies. to get the best from this i think you could have reduced the central buch of poppies to 3 flowers and removed the one close to the left side of frame and cropped a little tighter to get rid of the strip of grass at the top/

then muliply 2 layers at about 60 % opacity to give a more gutsy exposure. nice idea though, i saw some much like this in Kos a few years ago

in the mod above, obviously i couldnt do the poppy removal but i rotated the canvas and cropped before making a contrast and curves adjustment together with a layer blend

regards
Phil

A well seen image, but it needs to be brighter. Just use the histogram or the brightness tool - you don't need a lot of processing. I suspect a bit of under exposure where the near white stone has told your camera to under expose. Auto systems can still easily be fooled in this day and age.
