Let's Dance

By chase
Another one of the huge Poppies that grow in my garden.
A wee bit on the windblown side but I think that adds to the already beautiful texture of the petals.
Lit by two lightboxes,one ( the stronger light) above the Poppy & one below.

I just had to add textures to this Wink I used 4 different ones,each with a slightly different blending mode/opacity.
Yep...a straight-on view & yep it's central...I think it deserves to be.
One for the printer methinks.

Thankyou for taking the time to look/comment.

Great minds think alike, Janet, I've processed one of my large red poppies in a very similar way with almost identical background texture ........... won't be posting that one now, but just have to give you credit for this one; beautifully done.
