Dancing Poppies by Meowgli Dancing Poppies by Meowgli
Poppies in a gentle summer breeze as ominous clouds amass on the horizon. Photo taken in Oxfordshire, England.

This is the only patch of red I've found locally and required an energetic if short trek to get there. The composition is a result of having to work with what I was given as I felt the tree was needed to add some structure, but turning the camera any further right would have included some unsightly nearby farm buildings. Nevertheless I think it works adequately enough to convey the notion of a gentle summer breeze through a splash of summer colour, which is what the shot's really about. Exposure was 1 second, for those who like to know these things...

Again i think "gentle", "wind" and "long exposure" dont go... it just looks blurry. "Gale force" on the other hand might be a different story...

Watch the saturation levels in the red - you have lost a lot of detail in the ones which arent moving (for instance) - get any of just the poppies? Miranda just walked in with the screen scrolled down so the sky wasnt visible and added that it looks nice and impressionist... maybe if you did an ND1000 of the sky and blended it with the foreground you have taken here it would complete the "impressionist" outlook she saw?

Anyway - cant fault the rest of the shot - I'm sure you took some more conventional exposure lengths of the same scene which would look conventionally fantastic considering the composition, colours and sky you had that day. You keep getting movement in your shots with flowers, i'll do my people movement thing - and we'll meet somewhere in the middle :P
