Poppies
« on: June 11, 2018, 06:12:55 PM »

A spectacular sight but backlit poppies are difficult to fit into sRGB. For reasons that must make sense to economists, but not to me, we pay farmers to leave some fields to grow what they will and at this time of year we get poppies. We have had more than a week of hot weather and this has led to poor visibility as well as thunderstorms and flash floods but gives atmospheric images. Comments? Ken

Comments? Ken

Very nice. I wonder about the brighter area on the lowest part of the tree trunk, whether it is a processing artifact or natural.

Taken earlier and with the sun sidelighting the image. We are due strong winds and heavy rain tomorrow night so the poppies will be gone for another year. Ken

I also like those poppies shots. The second has some fluorescent colors that I like very much but the first one is more relaxing/quieter.

The more I look at these the more I like them. Thatís hard to achieve. Personally I much prefer the first image.

For me they both capture the poppies well. I prefer the second for better depicting the feel of a warm summer day, a more congruent image. The WB seems better overall as well. I don't much like the appearance of the trees going near black.

I love them both. The first in particular reminds me of some of Monet's paintings of the same subject.
My mom had a poster of this one in our house when I was young and your first shot immediately reminded me of it.
