This sole orange poppy was sitting in a bed of Baby Blue Eyes, or Nemophila flowers. I liked the contrast between the two colours. This was in the Shouwa Memorial Park in Tachikawa, Tokyo.

Just great, Martin! I like the composition and the DOF you chose and the colours and exposure are excellent.

This really is a wonderful shot. The rich colour and lighting are what boosts this shot into the superstar category.

Beautiful contrast in colours. Shallow DOF used to good advantage. You obviously know what you're doing, Martin. The polarizer definitely helps bringout the colours. A perfect image. Although I don't know if you have the names of the flowers right. You could consult a "Peterson's Field Guide" or some other wild flower book for the names of flowers.

L'inclinaison du soleil est parfaite pour donner juste un peu d'ombre sur les pétales de la fleur jaune ...
Quant à la fleur bleue, à droite et en haut, elle est presque trop proche mais donne finalement un côté naturel à l'ensemble.
