'Sun' Flower by xtremefusion 'Sun' Flower by xtremefusion
I always love to shoot these big faced flower called sunflower. I guess they are like models, so photogenic and versatile. :D this was shot from bottom so therefore the background is white becos it's the sky. :)

Thanks to my neighbours, who are lovers of the flora species, you can catch me wondering and sneaking around trying to shoot closeup of their flowers :plotting:

Well, I shot it this way because the pollen grains are like the seperators between the petals and the center..I don't know what u think. So??? Let me hear it! :blowkiss:

colors and composition... wel done.

That's such an amazing photo to just sit and stare at for a minute or two. The detail is incredible and the way it just fades off into the distance is great too :)

a beautiful macro of a sunflower!
your so lucky.. i havent had the best of luck with sunflowers.

ive photographed a lot of flowers in my day.. but sunflowers just never work out for me.. they always die on me.. i believe they need a lot of sun.. and i just can't give them the right amount.. wisconsin isn't a good place to grow them i think.

but this is just lovely.. a wonderful job!

Sunflowers are my favourite flower... they're just so big, and happy and generous.

Gorgeous shot, I love the close-up, and the crop. And I definitely like the way you shot it, with the pollen grains as seperaters. Excellent.

:+fav: I love it. It's just so... well, radiant :D

A great macro of a Sunflower. I love sunflowers, also have some in my gallery. Feel free to look and comment.
Maybe if you just had something darker in background to give it some more contrast. Anyway details are just GREAT!!!!
