Another shot from my evenings fun last week at a glorious poppy field near my home, that unbelievably i have failed to notice for the past 2 years!!

Anyway, this one taken seconds before the sun disappeared from view for almost an hour, before reappearing for seconds only(see previous shot for info)

As per comment from previous photo, no HDR used on this or any of my shots, though i have no issues with it, im just not that clever and so wouldn't know how to use it if i could. Just a polariser, 3 and 2 stop ND filter ever used on any of my images.

Please view large, and thanks for looking.

A lovely image. I kinda think it could look better with an increase in contrast to just the bottom third of the photo.

You must be chuffed with this. A striking scene well captured and processed.

Thank you all for your comments. In response to 'jgmford', this was taken in a field approx 1/2 km west of Whipsnade Zoo, on the road leading to Dagnal. Unfortunately many of the poppies are on there way out now though so if you want to visit, you'll have to be quick!
