Colourful and striking! I can see why you shot this.

The problems are caused by low light and the technical settings you had to use: wide aperture at a very long lens setting has meant that depth of field is tiny, and focus is on the further-away twigs on the right, rather than on the nearest poppy, which would be the most natural choice. Did you have a single focus area selected, or was the camera choosing where in the frame to make things sharp?

It's a subject that would benefit from walking round and checking all the angles - I hope you did this! As they say on CSI, 'work the scene'!

I wish I'd spotted this!

You needed just on poppy dominant and then that poppy would need to be pin sharp. Here, I fear, one of them are sharp and red, being so powerfl, must have the resolution.
