'Not quite ready' to go POP and release its seeds.

The seedhead of a poppy in our garden standing proud of the other plants.Funnily enough, the seeds from this particular poppy do not spread all over the garden, unlike the poppy seeds of wild poppies.

Thanks for looking.

the poppy's head are always very nice surprise; and when they are ready the number of seed
here you choice to make a lom effect going very well with the flowers

Good use of the dof to isolate the seedhead of this poppy. I like the darken borders. Well done, tfs.

Hi Jean
What makes this photo stand out for me is the vignetting. The seed head reminds me of a hairy spider. The shallow depth of field works really well also.

Hi Jean
excellent close up. good sharpness and clarity. nice natural "design" with 3D feel.

Hi Jean
Excellent focus on the seedhead with sharp details. It seems to float in the air. Very nice indeed!

Very good use of the vignette/gradients to the corners to draw the eye into your subject....never realised the section above the head of the poppy were 10, am intrigued with numbers in nature, Aquilegia, 5 for instance...

stv ;o))
