This photo is totally good. I like the bright flower color, and the color of the clouds. Because the lighting of the photo is good, so all the objects looks clear, especially the flowers. The correct adjustment makes this photo looks dramatic.
I appreciate your idea to taking this photo from the lower angle, so the flower looks clear, and the background looks blurry. I think that flowers are the "eyecatcher" for this photo. Why I say them the eyecatcher, because I think the people will see the flowers at first. It means the flowers are the point of this photo :D
The brownish color cast is very nice, makes me think it is a retro photo, also giving warmth atmosphere.
For the contrast, I think it's already good. But, I think the color toning needs to improve, because I feel the red color tone on the grasses is too much. It is better to make the grasses greener, in order to the makes the grasses looks natural.
I suggest to add the vignette, to make this photo looks more dramatic.
The conclusion is, this photo is really good, but you need to make the grasses greener, and adding the vignette. So, I appreciate your work, and sorry for my English! :P

A lovely photo, I especially like the vintage feeling over it but it still does not loose qualite as many vintage-edited photos does. The colors are beautiful, very warm and it is perfect for the red tone of the poppies. The little yellow-ish tone on the clouds is also very good. I just have one thing, and that is the red flower to the lower left of the picture that looks like it is almost touching the lens. Since it is so big, it is a little bit disturbing and draws away some attention from the rest of the picture, I think it would have been more beautiful without it.
Great picture though!

I am confused and was wondering if there was a reason that you removed this delightful photo from :icongardenofbeauty:? ?? Did we do something wrong or offensive?  We value each and every one of our deviations that are in our group and are sad to see one removed. :(  We are greatly sorry if we have done something to cause this.

I'd have preferred if you write me a private message.
However, absolutely no, you didn't do anything offensive, indeed the group is really very nice, but it can happen that I "clean up" my work by the groups after many months or a few years, nothing personal, but this is a very old submission.
I'm sorry if you misunderstood my gesture, I apologize, but this should not be anything offensive to admins or the group.
I am admin/founder and contributor of 9 groups and I see many people remove the old submission from my groups, so I suppose that I am not the only one.

Sorry for my bad english and I hope you understand what I meant :hug:
A big hug dear Sheila :huggle: you have a beautiful gallery :heart:

Have a nice day!
