[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I didn't get many sunflower shots this year, so I pulled this one out of my archives. At first I was annoyed that the woman and her daughter were walking in the field while others were trying to take photos, but then I thought better of it and took a few shots trying to take advantage of the seemingly endless field of flowers. The background worked out well because of the valley and following hill.

HI Werner..nice job. I like your photographer in the flowers...nicely done.


Wow,quite a display of sun flowers Werner,one gets a feel of a 3 Dimensional image,due to the valley & hill.Your image is sharp & clear,an excellent focus & capture of the natural colouring of flower & their stalks.I'm with you on the mother & child,though both I think, would be excited to be among this breath taking view & not even aware that you were also trying to capture this view.I thought it a pity that the mother was not taking an image of her daughter among all these flowers,but rather of the sun flowers only, as I thought it may have given a different look to your composition.I did a work shop for a comparison,not as a critique.

Hi Werner,
What a lovely shot of this sunflower field. I like the woman and the girl in the field taking photographs. They are, of course, the focal point but the yellow field is complimenting their fairness.
Excellent light and a splendid composition.

Hi Werner
The inclusion of the photographer shows the size of the field and gives a point of interest.

A summery moment to remember, very pleasing to see so many sunflowers.


Hello Werner,
I like your composition here with the couple perfectly placed in the frame to give interest without intrusion.
The focus point and exposure settings are also well chosen to give maximum effect to a very attractive photograph.
Best wishes Les.

Bom dia Werner,
The POV you chose yielded much depth of descent and ascent in the background.
A beautiful picture very cheerful even with the appearance of candid shot.
Nice lightness and sharpness.
Great one.

ola Werner

Hi Werner,
The photographer and daughter have created an interesting focal point amongst the vibrancy of the yellow sunflowers.
