Colours of Summer

By Sue_R  
Just loved the summery colours in this photo of a poppy that popped up in one of the seed trays in the polytunnel. I also liked the way the plastic of the polytunnel made the sky in the bg look all hazy so I thought I'd go a step further and give the whole image a dreamy, hazy effect. I like the way it came out. Hope you do too Smile

Thanks for your votes and comments on my recent uploads. They really are much appreciated.

You're getting good at this playing around, Sue! A very beautiful presentation. Please excuse brief comments - lots to catch up since coming back from holiday! So nice to see all your lovely images that I've missed whilst away.
Hope your shoulder's much improved since I went away, and you're taking care of yourself.
