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?

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!
