First off, thanks for the lovely welcome back, Ann Smile

Second, this is very dreamy. The angle, lighting and detail are amazing...and the vignetting's given it that push from wonderful to perfect.

Shortlisted in a flash.

Ann, this is easily one of the very best sunflower shots I have seen: beautifully lit side view, the selective focussing working a treat, marvellous colours and against that black b/g it shows off to perfection.

Superb work Ann. I have seen many pictures of sunflowers but never one like this - not easy to find a completely new take on such a well used subject and superb execution by the way. Love it.

A highly unusual angle on the sunflower, bringing the side into sharp focus, shallow focus and excellent detail and sparkling colour. Hard to find something new to say after all these complimentary comments, well done Ann.
