[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Red Poppies seem to grow well in the friable volcanic soils of Milos island. Apparently the salty air means many plants do not thrive here and regular droughts over summer months makes it a difficult environment for some species.

Hi Murray, I like the colour contrasts seen in this shot with the Poppies. This is a tough one though I think with the lighting. The detail on the green is good, but I think maybe for the red, a little less light might have been a little better to show off more detail, with closer focus on the first large flower.

Thanks, John

Hi Murray,

The point of view leads our eyes to the trees in the background. The re flowers in the foreground are a complement to the composition. The subject is well frame. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
