Here's yet another view of the field though my bedroom window, in a few moments of sunshine20 minutesago. It's the annual recurrence of the poppies in nearly the same place every time. I've included the window frame for the purposes of the challenge. The field, poppies and wires aren't quite as sharp as they might be, because it's blowing a gale (>20mph), but they'll do. There was going to be another shot, but the sun's gone.

1/203s, f/8, ISO100, 62mm equiv., flash assistance for the frame, focused on the hedge just below the window, but setting it to infinity gave apparently the same result.

Since you have included the frame for the challenge it's OK but I would crop it out for printing or any other purpose. Your DOF is great. That little camera produces some amazing results.

I like the odd angle of the window frame. i think it adds a neat dimension which makes you look twice at the image.

I agree with vsch1. It sure made me take a second look, too.

I have to go with the frame lovers. It adds a bit of mystery to the photo.
