Have looked at this several times and still not sure, Maria.
Maybe its the pink in the background stopping the flowers from being dominant. The dark outline gives it an air of mystery.
Strangely, its one of those pictures that makes you think and take time to study, and from that point of view you have succeeded.
Just had a thought, Maybe seeing it in large would maake up my mind if I like it or not.

Back again, Maria.
Maybe if you had changed the F8 to F4.5 you would have taken the background a little farther out of focus and brought more impact to the flowers.
Maybe try this next time.

Hi Thoramay, it's the canvas effect that has made the Poppies less dominant, it always does this, i wanted a muted effect and to focus on the middle flower which had some light on it, i should have stated this sorry, but thank you for your interest and comment.
Kind regards Maria

Your explanation helps me understand the picture and yes! it always helps to explain your picture.
Not a fan of the canvas effect but everyone to their own and you have made me stop and keep looking so that is success. Still recommend the f4'5 approach. F8 has never been an option in flower shots for me.

regards thoramay.
