*Greetings from the Critique Club*

I found this a pleasing image, especially this time of year.

Compositionally I like the one prominent subject, with less prominent subjects also in the photo. Had this not been a poster, the blank space at the top might have bugged me a bit, but it worked well for the poster.

Technically I think the image is quite good. The sun rays and yellow color of the sunflower petals are gorgeous, and I like the see-thoroughness of the sunflower petals. The green and blue colors seem true.

A dictionary definition of propaganda says information used to publicize or promote a political cause or point of view. IMHO this might be where the image is a bit weaker. The top images in this challenge almost did not appear photo-like, and most are at least clearly advertising something. The message in this image, while pretty, is less clear.

I never thought a sunflower could be so profound.

Although its a great contre-jour, and a very nice saying,( it may suffer from an in your face style that is not suitable for propogandizing.)7

Not sure how the quote relates to "propaganda"?

I don't get the phrase. The text and effects look good though.
