This is probably as good a poppy shot as I have seen this season on here, however I do think the background could benefit from a little more diffusion and maybe some cloning. I refer in particular to the long light object centre stage.

Good one !

This is a truly beautiful image - there's not really much more to say that has not been said by many others. Perhaps because of the symbolism of the poppy, it has a strong poignancy about it.
