Gerd Pischl, Austria
The photo was taken on a windy day in Burgenland, Austria. My intention was to document an incomparable countryside. I also wanted to illustrate the dynamic of the wind. I had only a brief moment to capture the scene because the wind direction changed fairly quickly and a few moments later, a photo like this, of a single poppy tenderly rocked in the grainfield by the wind, would not have been possible. My only Photoshop work was to adjust the contrast and sharpness and to correct the colours.
