Opium Dreams..... by JakeSpain Opium Dreams..... by JakeSpain
A field of opium poppies near Headbourne Worthy, Winchester, Hampshire,UK.

Filtered and blended from 2 frames to remove sun flare. I shot 2 frames, the second one holding my finger over the sun to shade the lens from flare.
I had to use a high iso speed here because I needed to balance a relatively fast shutter to freeze any wind movement and a small aperture to maximize the DOF.

Excellent shot, love the backlighting, well done!
And interesting technique to combat flare - I've been struggling with that for some time with my 'into the sun' pics, will have to try the thumb method!

:iconjakespain:
JakeSpain Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
A thumb, a finger a piece of card a stick or stone, whatever you have. It's really simple if you already use masks in photoshop.... Just cover up the sun so the flare rays don't hit the lens element.
Thanks.
