Ooh, gorgeous! I love the two petals reaching back into the center.

I’m curious what this is? A straight photograph?
Thank You

Hi Steven. Yes, a straight shot of a variety of poppy. Large crop and standard adjustments only.

Stunning. I appreciate the absence of black the flower images can have.
Thank You

This is really beautiful Patricia. I love the delicate muted pinkish colors of the petals, accented by the stronger yellow color in the center. The placement of the flower also makes for a very dynamic composition, and really holds the viewers attention.

I like the effect you used here very much, but it looks like you added grain or ran some other artistic filter/preset on the image. You said this is a straight photograph, if that is the case I would be very curious to know how you processed this. I like the effect a lot, I’m just wondering how you achieved this look with a straight photo, it looks more like a watercolor painting.

Hi Patricia
Another gorgeous one!! Is this the “Illustrator” mode or some such on a Sony?
