I added a huge white vignette in ColorFX and used negative control points on the red of the poppies so they came out from behind the white.
Thanks for the fave!

Here in the UK Armistice Day and Remembrance Day (The Sunday Services) are always a big deal. Even today we happened to be in a tearoom this morning at 11am and they announced a 2 minute silence, which was immaculately observed. If it falls through the week schools fall silent at 11am and shops and many places of work observe it too.
Here's what happened in Passchendaele today, A hundred gun salute.
Thank you for the fave!
