The blue background is a wall of a painted water tank. The area I live in is so congested that we have to shoot whatever we can even if it means "Urbanized" flowers.
I had backlight that was soften by the hour and the tree 15 meters away.
Unsharp, darkened, increased contrast and treated by NeatImage (shot at ISO 200).

VERY VERY beautiful. I like the colors very much and the composition. I like the PP that you did too. This will be better appreciated in Trek Lens, I suppose, but I don't mind finding this here. I simply like it.

Très onirique ! on dirait vraiment une peinture... en tout cas les couleurs sont vraiment ravissantes, éclatantes et dynamiques.

All your flower shots are very nice, Sorry if I didn't comment the others, sometimes I have to make choices. This one particularly is fabulous, almost transparent flowers. Looks like a water painting but with strong colors. The red of the flowers could also be seen like drops of blood on a canvas.

This looks very much like a painting. I like those big red spots and the contrast with the blue background and also the fact that the green stalks look blurred, which gives even more strength to the poppies. Very nice composition.

Very wonderful! The blue background is emphasizing the red of poppies in backlight especially. Don't you like the more soft lens without two line blur? I like this photo very much!
