Murry Grigsby May 26, 2019

Mary-Ella Bowles level-deluxe May 26, 2019

Hey there Patrick!! How've you been?

As others have already said - this is very, very nice. I'm always a sucker for backlighting, especially when it reveals the translucence of leaves and flower petals. The colors in this image are rich and attractive too. A good one all around! #103286

Joy Brown May 26, 2019

Outstanding, Patrick! #103305

Patrick Campbell May 26, 2019

Thanks everyone for your kind words! Mary-Ella, I am still pursuing my passion as time permits. There's never enough time for it though when you have a 'real' job and a family. I drove by this field of poppies right up against the highway and they were just too beautiful to pass up. #103310

Darren K. Fisher level-classic May 26, 2019

WOW Patrick this is my favorite color and boy did you capture it well. A winner in my book!!! #103316

Patrick Campbell May 26, 2019

Thanks again everyone for your comments!

Dolores, at first I didn't know what you were talking about, then I took a look at the url of the site: http://www.printphoto.com/photo_contest.htm. I sent them an email some time ago but never got a reply. Is the company still in business? It would be nice of them to either disband the contest and take down the photos, or resume it. Not a priority I guess. #119651

Carol Engstrom level-addict May 26, 2019

It doesn't get much better than this Patrick! Of course if I were Judge of the Land I'd have made this the Grand Prize Winner! But my power is somewhat limited! ; ) Exquisite work!! #356542

Carolina K. Smith level-addict April 21, 2004

Wow! This is one of the most beautiful flower shots I've ever seen. I grew up in California, and so came to love poppies. Thanks for taking a wonderful picture... #495793

Patrick Campbell April 21, 2004

Thanks so much Patricia and Carolina. Patricia, I am sorry to be slow in responding to your praise. #495963

Karolyn Munson July 01, 2004

Patrick - I saw your winning picture of the fireman and decided to check out you other work. This one definitely caught my attention the most out of all of them. The color is absolutely gorgeous, especially with the lighting. My tiger lilies just opened up and I spent the morning trying to find that "just right" shot - I came up with some good ones, but nothing as stunning as this! Good work! I'm a fan now! #627750

Kristy E. Lane January 22, 2005

I was just browsing your gallery when I fell in love with this shot! Terrific! #1056773

Patrick Campbell January 22, 2005

Thanks Kristy! I entered a print in the "Birds and Blooms" magazine photo contest last year, and it was one of the four finalists. Beginner's luck, because I haven't concentrated on shooting flowers very much.

Thanks also to Karolyn! I'm sorry I missed your previous comment. #1057056
