California Poppy

Post by Roy Patience »

These poppies were blooming a few weeks ago in front of a neighbor's house.


Nikon D50
Sigma 28-80
1/125 @ f/16

I darkened the background to cover up the imperfect background and cloned out the huge dust spot on the sensor.

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. :D
