Poppy, wheat and Sunshine

This picture is one of the first I took with my Tamron 10-24mm super wide-angle lens in July last year.

I wanted to get an image which showed off the poppies against both the wheat field and the sky so I set a very wide angle of 11mm and held the camera low against the ground to achieve that. So low in fact that I couldn’t see through the viewfinder, so I preset the aperture to f/11 and hoped the picture would be mainly in focus, which it just about is.

Because of the way I took the picture, there was a fair amount of cropping to do in Lightroom during post-production, and I also dropped the clarity down  and the vibrance up to boost the colours.

Overall I’m quite pleased with the result, but I think it would have been better if I’d got even closer to the poppies.
