[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Poppies have long been used as a symbol of sleep, peace, and death: sleep because of the opium extracted from them, and death because of the common blood-red color of the red poppy in particular. In Greek and Roman myths, poppies were used as offerings to the dead. Poppies used as emblems on tombstones symbolize eternal sleep.

Bom dia Francis,
Let me say first of all, that magnificent combination of colors and shades.
Sharpness, light and detail, another point to emphasize.
Finally the tight crop and final-art are applauding.

Beautiful! Awesome composition with good lighting and dof with sharp details. Love the colors. Well done, tfs.

Hello Francis, I never tire of seeing the different ways that poppies are photographed.
Your shallow DoF on the heart of the flower works well, with the petals looking as if they have been painted.
Beautiful light right to the centre.
Tfs, regards Jean.
