Poppies 2010

Of all the flowers I shot this summer the images of poppies turned out the best.  I love the big bold colour of the orange/red against the green leaves.  I also like the tissue paper look of the petals.  My wife is thinking we should print a couple of these for our bedroom, perhaps a canvas wrap.

Poppies are big enough that focusing problems from hand holding the camera are reduced.  Also the dark orange colour does not glare as easily as lighter coloured flowers.  I still used a polarizer on these shots though.
