    Hi,

    Re: poppies

    Yes the first one for me also. It is such a sunny image. It certainly brightened a dreary rainy day here.

    Ian, there is no camera EXIF data for this image. I think it may be useful for others if you could tell us how you got the sky and the foreground so well exposed together...if you don't mind divulging trade secrets that is

    I did nothing special really..i shot in raw..the foreground was a little dark on the raw,but just lightened it in pp.
    I think it helped when the sun went behind a cloud when the pics were taken.
    To be honest i must have taken about 25 pics that afternoon...those were the best two.
    Thanks

    Ah that makes sense. I was pretty certain you had not used fill flash. Good bit of PP.

    1st for me too, I like the sunlight and shadow through the petals and of course the color combo

    Photographing a swath of flowers is so difficult to do well; but your second image carries the interest deep into the field. This rarely seems to work for me.
