Poppy near sunset. They tend to be open in the morning. This flower is at least three feet up!

I'm liking the dof and the colors are very interesting. Not simple at all (as some would have you think).

Simple, but draws the viewer. One of my favorites. Very underrated.

I really like how you managed to isolate one from the herd. They're hard to separate out... :-)

Splendidly how solitary orange flower contrasts against the gentle greenness of the plant.

Beautiful picture. I especially love the texture of the grasses around this poppy, fading between completely out of focus and in focus.
I do think the lighting on the flower might be a bit too bright. Slightly softer lighting (not too much of course, to not lose the contrast) and maybe zooming in a tad more, would give the flower a greater impact.
Great job.

Compelling. I found the blobs out of focus on the foreground distracted me a little bit.

A really lovely image - the orange is so striking because of the pale (desaturated?) green.
