Shot two overexposes the sky, but does the poppies OK
I did quite a lot of fiddling with burn and dodge, on a 50% grey overlay.
I also played with shadows and highlights, and colour balance and saturation.
This is the final result of a blended image. First time I've tried it, not entirely happy with it, but that's more about not having the tripod and not having a particularly good image to start with.
It definitely looks better than the original!!
