lovely set David, V1 for me, this is the image I had in my minds eye to take in France, however, the light was awful and the moment lost!

In V1, I like the way you have isolated one sunflower from the field, by restricting the depth of field. I think I would have preferred V1 if you had not cut of the heads of two sunflowers; perhaps, a portrait orientation would have been more apposite?

V2 is probably my favourite. However, I prefer the background in V1. But then V1 doesn't have the wasps.

V3 would have been my favourite, but for the telegraph poles. If you had chosen a lower viewpoint, you could have hidden the poles behind the flowers. So, despite there being more wasps in V3, I still prefer V2.

I don't like V4.
