Being lonely

Poppy Flower


Day 48 of my 365 Photo Challenge.

The motive of the day was a poppy flower, which bloomed lonely in the middle of a field. Its red colour makes it easy to focus the eyes of the viewer on the red flower!

For you the 3 guidelines for a good photo:

  1. know your subject
  2. draw attention to the subject
  3. simplify

In this case, the flower was the subject. I drew attention to it by following the rule of thirds and placing the poppy on one of the intersections.

Then I simplified the scene by using an open aperture to blur the background.

Besides, I applied the selective sharpness to the blossom of the poppy flower.

So go ahead and show me your implementation of the 3 guidelines!

Have fun with it!

This is the third poppy post I have seen today. And the beauty of it all is the fact that each and everyone was different smile
