Lovely painterly rendition of this poppy close-up. The blue hues of the petals contrast nicely with the yellow stamens.

I love the blue of this flower with the bowed head.

This blue is so intense it doesn't look real. I love the way the flower petals gently enfold the yellow stamen (?) which glows like the sun. Beautiful processing.
