Daily Deviation

Given 2009-03-03
standing out by =volcomchick Suggester writes: "love how the photo can stand on its own purely as an abstract piece, but at the same time it makes a powerful statement about nature of conformity and individualism. A school of fish is beautiful largely because it is a swarming mass of color where the individual parts are hard to distinguish; the beauty is in the conformity. However, this photograph shows one individual that dares to rise above the crowd, and that act takes the overall quality to a level that the group could have achieved on its own." ( Suggested by mudimba and Featured by kkart )

Standing Out by =volcomchick is just a wonderful, colourful and bright photo. It looks to good to be real. With the blurring and a perfect focal point. It's all perfect!

The vision is bright and adds a nice glow to the picture and a blending background. The fish are the same range of colours and all of the vision is top notch.

I have also never seen anything like this in all my time, such a great and original photo!

The impact is great to, i got drawn in by all of it and the crazyness and colours and blurs!

A great photo!

It's gorgeous! The blur of their movement gives it a impressionist painting feeling.
