California Poppies
Lens: Sigma 8-16 mm Camera: Pentax K-5 Photo Location: Morro Bay, CA

Looking upwards through some poppies growing in a parking lot planter (maybe I shouldn't tell you that ). I wanted to get the sunlight transmitting through the petals, and also the shadows where the petals overlap.

Nice composition. No need to be coy about where they are, but looking at the clouds, does your white balance need a bit of a tweak (or is that from the exhaust fumes? )?

Thanks Rob, and yeah the clouds do look a little too blue/purple. Good eye! Will fix.
