sony alpha a77 ii set to manual and fitted with a manual focus minolta 70-210 legacy 'beercan' lens with homemade ring filter attached

shot for 'the sunday challenge' - evoking a mood. a norfolk organic barley field populated with poppies and backdropped by the other side of a gentle rural valley provides my 'mood' image for this week. memories of childhood and a peaceful happy go lucky era come flooding back.

Rafael, Jef Chastria, JuMu, Christina Sonnenschein and 30 other people have particularly liked this photo

I agree with the comment above about the focus. And the minimal combinations of colour works really well also.

Love the contrast between the wild poppies and the organised striations of the fields in the hinter ground John!
Very laid back, rural, 'chillin' mood created with this shot!

Ah, I missed the poppies season this year. It would have been the opportunity to test the red colour issue of the Ricoh DNG with Adobe...
