Poppy

I have been attempting to create simple images of flowers against a white background. This is one of my early efforts. I set up a sheet of white card on a table in the conservatory and placed the poppy in a jar in front of it. I took several shots at different exposures. I especially varied the exposure compenstation. At the editing stage, I used the levels command to get the background as white as possible. I found that it was sometimes difficult to get to pure white. This is one of my more successful efforts.
