Poppy Heads


Photo Information
I think Andrew (bwlchmawr) once commented on one of my pictures that the dying or seeding stage of flowers is often more beautiful than the flowering. I think he is right when it comes to certain plants.

S-M-C Takumar 135mm f3.5, with 12mm Extension Tube to allow focus a little closer.

Beautiful use of DOF. I like the non focus in background that "extracts" subjects

Sharp, nice.
If you make a small slit in one of these with a razor blade, it will reward you with a little white photogenic ooze.
Best Regards, Larry.

All the gear & no idea.

Thanks Nuri, I have previously posted a macro of a poppy head (it is still in my portfolio) but I often prefer compositions as opposed to macro shots.

Thanks also everyone else for the positive comments on my picture.

Wow Maria, you really have a keen eye! I didn't even notice the face until you pointed it out!

Thanks to everyone for the kind comments on this picture.
