We have a selection of ornamental poppies self seeded around the garden. I prefer my poppies red. These ones are pale pale orange, and within minutes, it seems, of them flowering, they fade, and look like bleached orange paper.
But I discovered that close up they’re quite striking.
You may need to tilt your head.
And with a teeny bit of editing
I’m not actually sure which one I prefer. The editing is problematic at times, I’d like to get the shots without having to worry too much. No cropping on either of these, and only a little enhancement on the brightness, reduction on the contrast. Or was it the other way around?
Anyway, I’ve decided I quite like them close up. What do you think?
