Hello Billy,
Excellent contrast of colors!
Lovely composition and point of view,fine details!

Hi Billy,
Wonderful photo where the backlight illuminated this poppy beautifully. Superb work on both the composition and DOF. Sharpness and exposure a spot on with great soft shades and nice highlights. I am not so sure about the frame and the flower but in the bottom right.

Hi Billy, Lovely shot with stunning detail, and nicely backlight, great POV well seen. Cheers Rick

What lovely delicate flowers, the colours are beautiful against the background, lovely image sir.

A lovely shot!
Wonderful lighting - great colors. These flowers are beautiful and often overlooked because they are so common.

Hello Billy !
I love this picture, it is very beautiful ! The color of the flower is amazing (I love violett) and the light is truly wonderful. i like it how it shines through the patals, making them look translucent. Nice details and natural colors, splendid composition, beautiful blurred BG. Very well done !
