  • Lone-lone poppy

    I was dragging back to my ship from the Rouen downtown and I noted this flower in the port area. I was caught with a combination of nature and the result of human activity. Like often in our world - the Mother Nature has to survive between steel and asphalt we pack her in...

    I think isolating the flower from the background makes it look even more lonely.

        Good shot

        The framing and DoF work well to enhance the flower

                  Yes, I agree with the previous comments, very nice. The contrast with the drab man-made artifacts with the poppy makes the shot for me.

                    Great compostition and subject. It gives a lot of emotion in a simple flower.

                            I also really liked this when I saw it a few days ago. I wanted to reply straight away but I am trying to train myself to say more than 'nice pic' especially when somebody has posted in the 'Looking for Perfection' section, as I am trying to learn how to give constructive feedback and be more objective about images. So here goes, this is my take on your pic. As has already been said I like the contrast in colours which works well, also you have not over saturated the poppy, which could have been a temptation. IMO the DOF is perfect, the focus is firmy on the poppy but you are left in doubt about the context in which is it growing. I also like the contast in the harsh lines on the rail tracks and the softness of the poppy.
                            As others have said - well seen. Its one of those pics I wish I had taken.
