A really simple and nice composition. I love the sun shining through one side of the poppy (I've never seen a yellow one before) and the other side in shade, a great contrast of colours against the blue sky. Nice low-angle POV too, nice shot.

Great capture of good detail on the yellow poppy contrasting well against the brilliant blue sky. Thanks for sharing and welcome to TN!

Guessing that this is a welsh poppy, we only have 2 yellow poppies growing naturally in the UK.
great composition - works well against the blue sky, though I think it woudl benefit with a touch less exposure - so either underexpose or decrease the brightness afterwards.

what an impressing capture of this yelow poppy against the clear blue sky! I very much like minimalized compositions as the one you arranged here!
(To add to the final perfection, I might suggest cleaning the slightly noisy parts of the BG around the blossom. That noise obviously has been created by some postwork sharpening. It is easily removed by applying a noise removal filter selectively on BG by means of a magic wand selecting tool.)
That picture looks very fresh and gives you high spirits,
it is looking hilarious, indeed.
Thank you, and best regards,
This is a vivid and happy shot with wonderful colours and a creative, simple and beautiful composition. I never saw a yellow poppy!
I make a Workshop following Peter's advice.

I like that! It is so graphic, so beautiful! the yellow poppy against the nice soft blue sky is so simple, but so efficient. I like the luminous and shadows zones of the flower.
Thanks a lot!

Very artistic, but also a well executed photo. Lighting, exposure and composition are spot on. DOF could be a little wider, but it doesn't spoil the photo.

I really like the concept of this photo. The composition is simple and zenlike. Great contrasts in color - great vivid colors. :)
