Hello All,

This is a simple shot from colorful poppy flowers growing on the roadside. This is the picture which I took in the late afternoon time where I like the way they were enjoying a cool breeze after a warm session of weather in the early afternoon.

I hope you enjoy the mood in this picture.

Best greetings,

Bom dia Paras,
The gradation and harmony of colors is magnificent. Since the focus is too soft although I can see that this is deliberate to convey a vision of personal impression and interest you put here to colors and shapes but without concern for realism.
Have a good day.

Nice composition keeping the flower on the corner and within focus and distorting full background.
The simplicity here is a great plus.
Have a great day

Hi Paras,
Glorious lighting on these yellow poppies captured from an interesting POV and with good use of shallow DOF. An unusual contrast with the light purple BG but very attractive.
Very neat and soft work.
My best regards,

Hello Paras, these poppies are a simple flower but so beautiful.
The composition is good with the in-focus poppy in the right hand third, balanced with three out of focus flowers to the left.
What was in the bg to give us the pink/red tint?
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Paras

The yellow green & magenta bg colors go well together here. Perfect sharpness on the flower & good lighting contrasts. Nice shallow dof & framing. Tfs!

Hi Paras
Lovely yellow flower shot with fine lighting condition and the shallow effects beautifully here.

Hi Paras,

Very delicate, very smooth and dramatic!
Off-center composition works nice here!
Fantastic colors and clarity!
Less details creates dreamy view!
Strong bokeh with almost no noise!
