Dear All,

A simple closeup floral capture where an Indian Pink Poppy flower is blooming in a field. I enjoy watching flowers the way they dance to the tunes of the wind.

The poppy flowers are delicate and their petals are so smooth and fragile, make them such nice flowers too.

It was a sunny day and light was enough to expose the inner beauty of this charming flower. Hope you enjoy the shot!

Kind regards,

Good tight framing with excellent sharpness & shallow dof. I like the vibrant mauve colour in this superb floral macro. The yellow coronet shaped stamen adds interest. Tfs!

Hello Paras,

Happy New Year 2012,

This is a very beautiful macro photograph!
You're capturing well this pretty Poppy by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see delicate petals with mixed of red/white and elegant center. I always think that the nature is so mysterious when seeing and touching these flowers.

Warm regards,

Fine details and textures and good contrast with the dark heart.

Bonjour Paras,
Un délice pour les yeux, avec ses pétales légèrement froissés tel de la soie dans un dégradé de rouge clair allant sur le blanc, un coeur remarquablement détaillé par la magie de la macro....
Il est superbe, merci pour de doux partage...

This macro is like an explosion of color with great detail in the center. Well focused that reveals the fine texture of the petals.
Very Artsy Image
