Hello Rose,

GReat sharpness to this photo. Vibrant green shades surrounding the unfolded yello sunflower petals. Well composed and nicely presented. TFS.


Hello Rose! Wonderful macro, perefct capture and exposure, ideal natural light and bright, good colours, very good contrast and sharpness. original picture. Very sophisticated effect. Good luck!

Hi Rose,
Amazing clarity!! Sunflowers are one of my fav flowers to photograph, they look just as good closed up like this too :). Can also spot a small insect in this photo. Such natural colours, impressive job.


hi rose
great macro image,beautiful detail good strong colours and great border.

Schön Guten morgen, Rose!

A wonderful piece of artwork, you have showed in this beautiful work! I like the fusion of yellow and green colors in this picture...simply a wonderful idea to capture the sunflower in the resting mood :) but a visitor (a bee) is still hopeful to explore the flower in order to know what it hides inside for the bee :)
A wonderful prespective!

Schöne Grüße,

I'm not sure if you framed the shot this way, or if you cropped it, but the results are excellent. This is very much different than most sunflower photos and very interesting. Nice macro work, TFS.

Hallo Rose,

Wunderschönes Bold mit fantastischen Farben.
Ganz schönen und scharfen Details.
Sehr gut gemacht!

Danke und Grüße aus Holland,

Hallo Rose,
sieht wirklich aus, als wollte die Blume jeden Moment aufspringen und ihre Pracht entfalten. Sehr gute schärfe und satte Farben trotz gedämpften Licht. Den Rahmen empfinde ich ein wenig krass.

Hi Rose,
Excellent tight crop and superb sharpness. Brightness, contrast and colours all are spot on. One nit pick tough, the bright area in the right upper corner is a little bit disturbing. Overall an awesome picture Rose!

Hallo Rose,
schöner Anblick dieser schlafenden Blüte der Sonnenblume. Exzellente Nahaufnahme. Leider ist der Sommer bald vorbei und ich werde die Farben der Blüten vermissen
Viele Grüße,
