This lady dressed in vivid red really 'caught my eye' indeed , seen here from the best vantage point: the square tower of the Fantast Castle , 30 kms north of Novi Sad in the flat as a pancake northern region of Vojvodina . There was a wedding being celebrated when we visited so walking around the premises of the castle comprising a horse stable , a chapel , a park with a large pond ( emty of water at the time ) )was fairly interesting for as long as we managed not to mingle with the celebrating guests , remember we are tourists here , hey . For a more secluded spot we climbed to the viewing platform at the very top of the castle for some excellent views of the surrounding plains and were also able to peep down on the action taking place below : we caught glimses of the bride and groom left alone with their dog in the park where less than a minute later i took this photo, mere meters away . My contribution to the theme today for the eye catching effect she has on me hoping she will make an impression on you viewers too ,oh in PP i applied a slight bloom after playing with levels a little ,
thanks for looking ,

Good submission for the theme Carol,her striking red dress & black hair indeed catch one's eye.I wondered what had caught her eye, as there does not seem to much of interest other than the grass?


Hiya Carol, hope you are well :)
This is eye-catching indeed. She really stands out against the grass in her bright red dress, and I also appreciate all the negative space you've left ... really adds to the concept.
Enjoy the weekend ... are you sweltering in high temperatures over there?


Cette photo, ce moment m'évoque le poème de Baudelaire " à une passante ".
Très bonne netteté sur la robe de la dame, le rouge est superbe, ses longs cheveux noirs aussi et la douceur du vert sublime l'ensemble.
Comme un joli coquelicot dans un pré. Excellent pov et intéressante utilisation de l'espace.
Je crois que c'est ma préférée pour ce thème.
Bravo pour cette observation et le rendu artistique.
Bon week end.

Awesome capture and great composition! The red dress is eye catcher. Love your pov and nice framing. Wonderful colors with good saturation. Very well done, tfs.

This is really an eye catcher, there is something poetic in this photo, well seen

Indeed, a wonderful contribution to Friday's theme, Carol!

The woman in red really pops out against a light green field.
The sharpness and POv are excellent, and light is very well managed.
Good contrasts and well clarity in the scene.

Have a nice weekend.


Thinking of the song! Love it! Great shot Carol! Really nice pp work on this! Very minimalistic, perfect for the theme! Super saturation!

Hi Carol,
A real eye catcher here. This lady dressed in red is the first thing to notice in this soft ambient. I like the positioning of the girl making use of the thirds. Nice contrast. A worthy contribution to the theme.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Carol

She'd catch my eye, too. Good color contrasts between the red & green in this superb minimalist shot with just the female photographer, her camera & the green grass. Impeccable sharpness and a soft diffused lighting. A good downward pov too. Tfs!

Hi Carol, she definitely does catch the eye, kneeling all on her own in the grass in that red dress. The grass looks quite soft in this too. Geez I dont think my hair has ever been that smooth..Fiona

Hi Carol,
I like the simplicity of your photo, the red focal point is close to the classic thirds area, and really pops out from the green background.
Well seen, and well timed.

Hi Carol,
A really neat and interesting image, well seen the red and contrasting tonal greens, great shot.

Beautifull shot, well seen and well presented.
