Standing Out From The Crowd
10-JUN-2010

Standing Out From The Crowd

Is it good to stand out from the crowd, to be the one who is different, who has the courage
to speak out, to raise one's head above the parapet?
Or is the one who stands out an attention-seeking ego-maniac?
I don't know but this lone poppy in a field of barley made me wonder.
And I guess both are true.

Nikon D90
1/160s f/5.6 at 105.0mm iso400 full exif

other sizes: small medium large

This could almost be described as "minimalist impressionism". Nicely spotted and caught!

Without that outstanding poppy the field of barley would only be, well, a field of barley.
NOW it´s a very beautiful piece of art!!
I love it!! V
