Hello Francis Xavier,

Superbe composition une carte postale emplie de merveilleux soleils.
Subtile position et travail soigné comme dab.
La présentation sur cet écrin noir est un choix judicieux. Compliments pour ceci.

Hi Francis Xavier,
I feel warmer already,it's dark & pouring rain this morning,so it is so good to view this colorful warm image.
I like the format,the hues of yellows,the shape of the petals
& the clarity of the image,as Silke points out, the backlighting makes this pop.
Best Regards

Hi Francis,
Very nice composition with these sunflowers,
Excellent panorama picture well presented ,
nice tone of colors and light,

Hi Francis Xavier

That's a major league photo, an awsome composition with a superb backlight and razor sharp details.
What else can I say that :"I would have like to shoot it myself".



Rated A+ Francis , in this case needless to get all the usual appreciation about saturation , light , exposure etc..in writing , it's all there in just the perfect amount in all fields , congrats my friend , one to be proud of ,

Hello Francis, sunflowers are so photogenic, and you have certainly taken advantage here to create a beautiful picture.
The black bg sets off the bright yellow flowers a treat.And the backlighting is wonderful.
The 'letter box' presentation is perfect.
I am unsure about the lettering,I don't think that it is really needed,but that is just my personal opinion.
Tfs, regards Jean.
