The sunflowers in the backyard are 15 ft tall this year. That is, except for the dwarf sunflowers, which are only about 4 ft tall. I've taken lots of shots of them, trying for something interesting. The one I love the best is this one

I'm not a member so I can't vote on member challenges. Instead, I look through the entries for images that make me stop clicking on to the next one. This is one of those images....

What an interesting shot. I like the combination of different petal states and the way you've composed it overall. I also appreciate that it's vibrant and rich in color without be overly saturated. Very nice... hope it does well in the voting.

I do like the flower petals. I don't like the greens. Also, there's an unusual fringing around the petals, especially on the lower right.
