About the Image(s)

This was taken in the past week. I found a local field of sunflowers and spent a while taking various images, including this one.

What I did:
As usual, I've kept any manipulation to a minimum
Cropped slightly to remove a couple of sunflower edges on the right side.
Resized for this Group

Love how one these sunflowers to be in focus and glad it's not the middle as allows to capture their beauty.   Posted: 09/08/2023 20:44:49

This is a really nice sunflower image. It was a great idea to choose an angle so that the in-focus flower has a green background so that the flower is completely surrounded by a good color contrast. The composition of the out of focus flowers is also nicely picked and gives a nice color contrast from the top of the image to the bottom.

Hi Steven, great image of a sunflower in isolation, it is sharp with good detail in the head of the flower, the background is blurred enough to make out the other sunflowers, but without been a distraction, the sunflower is well placed within the frame.   Posted: 09/16/2023 08:02:05

Great shot of a complex background. The in-focus flower is perfectly placed and the background does not compete with it, but gives us a sense of the whole.   Posted: 09/16/2023 21:59:47

Recently, I can see many images about sunflower field with model. It is rarely to see only sunflowers. Nice !   Posted: 09/22/2023 02:59:05
