These poppies were blooming a few weeks ago in front of a neighbor's house.
1/125 @ f/16
I darkened the background to cover up the imperfect background and cloned out the huge dust spot on the sensor.
Images of undisturbed subjects in their natural environment. All subject types.
I've probably seen poppies a thousand times and did not know what they were or maybe not have taken the time to notice. The background looks okay there Roy, though the composition or framing looks a bit off, however it is hard to tell on a wide screen monitior when looking at a verticle image. I have been considering going back to a standard 19" monitor for that reason. Still a very nice photo.
