It looks like it's on fire, Ronnie.
I won't be the only one to sing its praises, but I think it's an exceptional image and gladly give it my UA.

that is a very vivid floral detail. It really jumped out at me and little did I suspect it was yours. ( I suspected Jenn Smile)
Very well composed and absolutely striking!

A bold image. The DoF choice means your petals are blurred but that way they cleverly frame the centre, an effect reinforced by the square crop and the contrast with the bitingly sharp centre is good. You have the light falling almost like a spot light on the interesting centre which as Dave says, looks edible (wrong type of poppy Dave! Wink ). I think it clever and striking and memorable.

What fantastic detail Ronnie, very nice indeed Smile Great colour
