Lovely colors. Mother nature has the best colro palet to choose from. The shot is lit well and the flower looks sharp and detailed, while the leaves looks softer. Frame fits the shot nicely.
Well Done

I like the amber cast to this image. It seems to suggest that as the sunflower opens up the light will get sunnier. I also want to lean into the shot and peek inside the bowl of golden petals to see what might be hiding inside ready to surprise us all:) Superb!

Salut Steve
I like the composition amd the different perspective here. I find the white /silver something behind the flower very distracting though. Perhaps you could have 'cloned' it out before posting.

beautiful shot s&s.
great yellow flower in the middle of this green colors.

Very nice photo showing the beauty of nature and this flower. I like the softness of the colors that goes very well with the beginning of life. TFS

Hi Stv,
Ah the sunflower season is at its peak, and your photo captures the flower beautifully. Green and yellow always make a good companion. Good exposure and texture. Best wishes. Danilo
