Very nice, Dianna...the textures applied to the b/g color and the warm glow you captured pops the subj matter beautifully...Poppies are interesting/beautiful at any stage, aren't they?

Beautifully done, Dianna. Love the bg treatment and your skills of composition. Outstanding selective focusing and that yellow circle in the bg really adds huge impact.

Browsing your gallery and came upon this well-deserved winner...I am doubly impressed to see your textures are your own...completely your creation. Just lovely. And what a charming combination of "stark" petal-less pods and lovely, delicate texture in the background...so neat!
...Congratulations!
