    I'm being picky because I have to: the barb should really be sharp too. One or two more f-stops might have done it but still left the background blurred?

    Would have loved to see both the barb & flower in focus.

    I'm much too inhuman to like this. The photo is ugly, the text is even worse. Like using a hammer to get the message across.

    Would have liked to have seen the barbed wire in focus and the other wires out of the way.

    its a bit too insipid for me.. trying to be fine arty and like tsjeu said, using a hammer.

    No problem with the OOF barbed wire as a metaphor for the memories of war fading away. But those extra wires ruin it.

    another note.WHO in the HELL ar these fools who put their "insipid" and totally non dimensional and non empathetic opinons here and have the nerve to say DELETE me? How shallow people are and how quickly they forget and do not care to see that oppression is going on right now still. HOORAY and BLESS YOU ido1, YOU ae wonderful and honest and human..................

    TNX jimeli1. These are DM group. I went there knowing what I will get. The pic was taken in Israel - near Kibuts Be'ery - lots of the red color is there in season.

    This is nice - I tried to take one of a poppie flower and barbed wire also - I can see the symbology in it. I have this one instead from the Golan.

    Poppie in the dark sky

    The meaning is far more important than 'focus on wire'
  • bihua 9y

    I'm wondering abou all the delete me people - I can agree, that the dof is not perfect and the picture would be technically better, when the flower would be completely in focus. I do not see any other wires, just two thin grass stems - and the world is like that, they are there.

    technique is one thing, but for me the value of a picture is in its essence and this picture has something to say and it is beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
