Poppies, photo by Harold Davis.

Briefly noted: I photographed these poppies (Papaver Rhoeas) for transparency by backlighting them using a lightbox.

Exposure data: 50mm macro, six captures at shutter speeds ranging from 10 seconds (lightest) to 0.3 of a second (darkest), each capture at f/32 and ISO 100, tripod mounted, captures combined in Photoshop using layers and masking.
