With summer winding down and fall rapidly approaching, I wanted to post a summer sunflower. From the archives.

May you have a bright and sunny day !

Hi Julie,

Simple sunflower?...hmmmm...I think it looks so adorable and special!
Great colors, wonderful sharpness, nice POV and well controlled shallow DOF, collectively give here great results. The yellow color emerges as a winner and the green-colored central part of the sunflower is very complementary to the sorrounding green leaves. Blue sky adds another feather to your crown. The presence of bee, gives 'youth' status to this lovely flower :)
Very well seen!

Thanks for brightening my day.

kind regards,
Paras Bhalla

Hi Julie

Marvelous warm cold colour contrrasts between the yellow sunflower & blue sky, with superb sharpness & effective tight framing. I like the splash of green in the bottom right corner. Tfs!

Hi Julie,

Hope you are doing great at your end.
what I liked about this photo is the pov here. the details and sharpness are also good here. natural colors and good use of the exposure here also. also tha addition of the bug adds dimension to this photo.


Yes, bright sunny! Happy! Nice sharpness Julie! The close crop is nice on this! Would not have worked any other way! Nice details!

Hi Julie,
Sunny image which puts energy in my day!
Excellent close-up with good details in the heart of this sunflower! I like the way he look at the sun , if he wants perhaps to defy the true sun! :)
Bravo! Annie
