Not sure if this picture has improved but the light was different and I thought that much was better it brought out the poppies more vividly IMO - dare not think what they are like this morning after high winds here last night. I found a lower pov was good but god I hurt this morning and if my feet got tangled up in the stems of the daisies I was in danger of falling as best of times I am not steady on my feet, I did try and walk where others had before me, I didnt want to upset the farmer.

Many thanks for all c/c's on my previous poppy upload that one is still my favourite, I am most grateful to you for calling by.

What was V3 is now V2 I changed them around Wink

Very different today Ann - I like how you have isolated a group of white flowers here - makes a greater contrast with the poppies. The lower eye level works really well - hope your back soon recovers Smile

V3 is my choice Ann, I like the composition and how you managed the crop. A grand sight when you found this, the heart would be busy keeping up I'm sure.

Ann have to say really good and pleased you returned as V1 and V2 are real winners,
and like the low angle used too.

I'm enjoying this series, and the way you are exploring the subject. I still cannot decide whether I want the horizon or not. Here I think I'm torn between V2 ( a denser band of soft reds at the top of the frame in lieu of horizon) and V4 (stronger foreground, contrasting soft dark greens at the top). V4 is stronger, I like the way the foreground flowers, and a few softer more distant buds, rise above the green 'horizon'; but the rape flowers intruding on the left are a distraction. I think I'd consider a square crop, concentrating on those four dominant flowers.

Four excellent images, Ann: your low POV and then soft lighting have both worked in your favour, and I would bebhappy had intaken any of these. I think my favourite has to be V3.

These images are so wonderful-- not able to choose which I like best!
a splendid showing for sure!
Jennnnnnn



PS--- I recently bought a folding camp stool-- light enough to haul along and quite low when oepned-- use it for comfortable low level image shooting!

Well, it was worth getting attacked by the daisies, Ann, to get these beautiful shots Wink Like the low angle, gives the feeling they go on forever. All very lovely, but think V4's my fave Smile
