    What a wonderful way to re-purpose war munitions. It's absolutely stunning. I wonder if a softer lighting would have brought out more detail in the petals.

    That is a very attractive pin. The cluster of small stones seems slightly out of focus. Also, the which specks in the background is a little distracting.

    The reflection of the sky (I presume) detracts from the quality of this entry. A UV filter in PP would help a lot here. Good pick for the challenge - certainly far more sophisticated than the poppies with a pin through even if they do carry exactly the same sentiment.

    And Remembrance Day is not far off. I am used to seeing the cloth variety, even knitted poppies, but this is by far the most sophisticated remembrance poppy I have ever seen. Beautiful, and great that it is sourced from munitions.

    Interesting object. Could benefit from more dramatic lighting, sharper focus.

    these poppies are very popular and are worn by our supporters throught the year and especially in November during the poppy appeal

    Nicely taken for a difficult subject.

    Doesn't do it for me on the sophisticaiton level. A nice thought and a nice broach. I wonder how many people know what it's all about anymore.
