I think the focus would have been better switched around, with the bud in focus, and the bloom blurred.

Too much reflection I think - it looks too washed out - sorry!
04/27/2002 03:06:00 PM
I htink the BG detracts from the image but still good
04/27/2002 12:57:00 PM
Would there have been a way to change your angle or something so that the bloom was in focus as well as the sunflower is. I like it against the white wall.
04/26/2002 03:52:00 PM
It kind of bothers me that the foreground sunflower is out of focus. It's a primary subject and should be in focus.
04/26/2002 02:59:00 PM
the fuzzness of the bud is too distracting.
04/26/2002 05:09:00 AM
Was this a macro shot? Unsure why the bud in front would be out of focus.
04/25/2002 05:04:00 PM
Nice image, it's a shame the foreground isn't a bit sharper to show the unopened sunflower.
04/24/2002 04:31:00 PM
the flower on the right is out of focus dude. signs of a rookie !!!
04/24/2002 02:20:00 PM
Nice picture. I think I would have liked this more if both flowers were in focus. But then, perhaps that adds an additional transitional element?
04/24/2002 01:28:00 PM
I'm not sure if having the blooming flower out of focus helps the transition, but I still like the photo regardless :o)
04/24/2002 12:58:00 PM
a young and an old sunflower, too bad the one in the foreground is so out of focus.
04/24/2002 12:47:00 PM
needs a much deeper focal plane to get both flowers in focus, and the flash feels really hot. Did you try a longer exposure without the flash?
04/24/2002 11:09:00 AM
The foreground is distracting,.. next time try some other depths of field.
04/23/2002 07:46:00 PM
The out of focus bloom in the front distracts me.
04/23/2002 10:21:00 AM
The sun flower on the left already seems to have the bloomed, and what looks to be a blooming sun flower, on the right, is far to out of focus.

I think reversing the focal point from the bloomed to the blooming would make this image very strong.
04/23/2002 08:19:00 AM
very nice altho i'd like to see the one in front more in focus
04/22/2002 09:24:00 PM
the vital part of your transition here is blurred out
04/22/2002 07:31:00 PM
really nice composition
04/22/2002 07:23:00 PM
I would have liked this better with both flowers in focus.
04/22/2002 02:36:00 PM
would have been better if both flowers were in focus.
04/22/2002 02:30:00 PM
This is a nice shot shoting a nice transition. If you could have brought the foreground into focus so that both the bud and the bloom were in sharp focus, this would have been a higher impact photo.
04/22/2002 01:33:00 PM
Good idea, need greater depth of field.
04/22/2002 01:32:00 PM
if the other plant were focused it would be great.
04/22/2002 01:23:00 PM
04/22/2002 12:37:00 PM
pretty..good color
04/22/2002 10:33:00 AM
Great idea, shame the bud is not in focus.
04/22/2002 10:23:00 AM
Nice picture, but would be a lot better if both were in focus
04/22/2002 09:25:00 AM
bright flower, that would have used some sun to really shine!
04/22/2002 09:12:00 AM
Nice concept but the depth of field ruins the shot.
04/22/2002 08:08:00 AM
I wish the depth of field had been a little sharper.
04/22/2002 08:01:00 AM
a little too typical for my eyes
04/23/2002 01:53:00 PM
nice idea but bud really needs to be sharp in shot
04/22/2002 02:43:00 AM
Would have been better if the Bud was in focus with the sunflower directly behind and above
04/22/2002 01:40:00 AM
Would be better if the "blooming" was in focus.
04/22/2002 12:39:00 AM
Right idea, but by not putting the bud in focus, you lost the message of transition. I can't help by look at the sunflower as being the subject and everything else as being the background. The background is adding very little to the message.
