    Ok.. I wasn't sure I was going to get an entry in this month as I was totally devoid of ideas and motivation. However.. When this put out an appearance in my garden, that was it. Absolutely minimal editing, sliders moved here and there, but only very slightly. Shadows, whites, highlights, clarity and contrast all upped just a touch, to get rid of the gloomy day feel. Couldn't/wouldn't shoot this one on a sunny day anyway :) There you go, another flower from me, surprise!

    Lovely shot M, although I can't help think that it could have done with brightening a bit more.

    Thanks Toby.
    Have to be careful with yellow like this. You brighten it too much and you lose the detail on the petals. Plus I like it more gloomy ;)

    Lovely Marika - never heard of yellow poppies before, where do they come from?

    I don't really know. I've always known a lot of colour varieties for poppies
