I found this dying plant out behind my studio. I thought that it was so ironic how this plant could manage to grow out of the blacktop, and then just die.

poor little guy :(

i like the image a lot, except the sunlight at the top is a little distracting. can we see a tighter crop?

I like this crop. The sunlight in the background is a powerful life symbol to contrast this sad little plant. The DOF is fantastic!

Thanks. It was one of the few times I used 2.8 outside in broad daylight.

caption for the current crop: location, location, location... ;)

Like M, I find the blown highlights at the top distracting. I do like seeing the other foliage in the background though because I think it makes you realize that location was the downfall for this little guy.

If you had gone to the nursery, paid for this plant, put it in a nice sunny spot and watered it regularly, it would have died much sooner :-)

I love it, especially in light of what I just posted. Great counterpoint.
