Summer Solstice California Poppies

California Poppies - no polarizer, no color enhancement

California Poppies – no polarizer, no color enhancement

Summer Solstice dawned clear and bright. The poppies called and I could not resist. I have hundreds, maybe thousands, of photos of poppies but alas, I keep on taking more. Poppies are so fluid, so temporary, so delicate and so addicting. I just can not leave them alone.

I decided to try out some film grain from Adobe Lightroom with the photo and I’m not sure which one I like best. Let me know what you think.

    Absolutely beautiful. I prefer the first one — the flowers are translucent, and almost look like a watercolor. Lovely!

    Petals full of sunlight. I prefer the first one

  4. Aunt Susan, We want to buy a very large poster of this photo, the first one. Please tell me how to do so. It’s awesome.
