Greetings from the Critique Club

Ah, California Poppy, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', '/') + 1) . ' jnenvir, so that means we are neighbors. This is as orange as they come and you certainly met the Challenge spot-on!

Yet it received just an average score. It has good definition, and that blue makes a nice complimentary contrast. Perhaps if that blue could have been brought out a bit more (I use Selective Colors a lot to make that happen) it would have made the image pop. Then, the poppy is just a tad flat and you do have such nice shadows in there. These are just thoughts to play around with.

There are SO many ways to shoot a California Poppy and aren't we lucky in our state to have so many of them to practice on!

really like the complimentary colors that are going on...since you are so very close to your subject I would have liked to see a bit more of the image in super sharp focus...just my opinion
