Reaching For The Sun

By MarkT  
This was taken about three weeks ago not far from where I live in Rotherham. The sun flowers were growing in a maize field which is grown as a cover crop specifically for game-shooting.

Hit F11 if you view large

Tone mapped one exposure in Photomatix
F13@ 1/4sec
ND Grad
Raw ISO 500 (forgot to change it)
Tripod


Cheers for looking.

Mark.

I really like this one Mark - I haven't seen any sunflowers this year at all Sad
I like the close-up of the flower in the fg and then the rest receeding into the distance - beautiful colour all round - excellent work!
