Odd one out, strange and unusual


Odd Person Out

This challenge closed about 7 years ago.

The Challenge

Enter a photograph of ONE PERSON (all ages) that stands out against or does not seem to “belong” to a group (where the “appearance” or specific order/sequence/activity are similar) of TWO or MORE other persons.

The PERSON that seems to be “different” (looks or acts different) from the rest as well as the group of two or more to which the “ODD PERSON OUT” doesn’t seem to “belong” need to be both part of the main subject of focus, and should take up a large portion of the composition.

There are many examples such as:
One lady in pink vs three in yellow (colour),
a group of four elders and one toddler (age),
one boy and five girls (opposites),
three best buddies: two Englishmen and one Japanese (facial features),
two joggers and a cyclist (activity) and so on…

See cover image by Helene David-Cuny on the right, be creative and have fun.
