I have these sun flowers growing in my planter in front of my house. I planted then last spring by seed. One plant came up last year and this year about 3 dozen came up on their own. The heads are only about 4 inches across. I thought the seed arrangement was amazing in how well each one had it's place to grow and be nourished right next to another seed. The geometric pattern I thought was very interesting as well.

Not much for processing as this is a basic editing rules.

Did not crop at all.

Funny...I actually came upon this by looking at all the coments ThatChickOverThere has made with the shoe horn comment. Wow. In a way, she did a favor. I didn't vote in this challenge (was on vacation) but what a beautiful example of order! Excellent!

To "ThatChickOverThere", One must choose to see things from another or different perspective. If one does not allow ones senses to experience the detail that is all around us, then one walks around in sort of a blur not realizing what potential is there to be experienced. If one takes the necessary time to perceive the possible potential in details, than one will come from a place of joy and happiness since that is a place where true order comes from. Choose to ignore these things while walking the tight rope of life and no true meaning will come and before one knows one will be below ground and not in the air to enjoy all the wonders of this place. Your comment was not constructive in the least. This site is meant for learning, not put downs. If you comment on anything in the future, I hope you consider the words I have written here with your perception of any image and the feelings of the photographer who created it.

Isn't nature grand? This looks a tad oversharpened to me, but an interesting crop.
