[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I found this wild violet poppy in a field. It was solely among wheat. It was very healthy and was enjoying the sun, there was a slight breeze and its petals were floating mildly. I had ample space for cropping to create this panorama concentrating on its perfect heart.

By clicking on the picture you'll be able to see the Large Version.

A crisp shot of the heart of lovely pink poppy, Francis!

Amazing details of the stamens and perfect contrasts existing within the floral scene.
The sharpness and POV are excellent, and the idea of presenting panorama really worked very well here.
I also admire the LP of this picture.

Thanks for sharing!

Kind regards,

It's so healthy as you noted. Thank you for showing us its beauty with a panoramic full of detail view.

Hi Francis & TL neighbor today!

Effective tight framing with good sharpness & a wonderful warm cold color contrast between the yellow & blue tinged violet burgundy color of the petals. Good dof & sharpness. I like the sliver of bg visible at right. Tfs!

Ciao Francis

Undoubtedly, the core of this flower delights me and very
Enjoy watching excess pollen, about the petal.
Bees would like it here a lot!
Sharpness and clarity be superb.
Compostion and presentation are lovely.
Very well done, TFS.

Hi Francis.

I love the sprinkle of pollen fallen on the base of the petals, i like the detail you managed to collect here, the offcenter stemen works so well in appeal. You can clearly see why bees are attracted to this. TFS

Excellent photo of a poppy, original colour, razor sharp details of the heart, perfectly done

It's amazing how a macro shot makes us see and discover unknown worlds.
You produced a gem here absolutely perfect in its clarity, golden in color and detail.
Thank you, my friend.

Bonsoir Francis,

Lucky it is only a picture. With all that pollen, my allegy would kill me. Nice sharp detail and the large post proves it. Good exposure, the light even if it looks sunny seems to be soft enough for good shadow detail. Nice work and TFS.


The contrasting colours are quite lovely. The light and clarity are excellent. Nice job
regards David

HI Francis...nice shot. Excellent crop and focus. Nicely done.


Hello Francis, a wonderful macro of the poppy.I love the slightly off centre focal point with an exquisite sharpness,so sharp every grain of pollen is visible.
The tight crop works really well with just a tiny glimpse of the bg, which complements the pink colours of the flower.
Regards Jean.
