Sun Flowers

By mark_elford  
I found a field of sun flowers.. and then another, are they more common in the UK this year..

As for the pic, the lighting is pretty average, I want to go back when I have some evening light.. but the clouds were dramatic at around about mid day..

This shot through to the wind the concept of rule of thirds and instead goes for the gardeners principle of trianlges.

Hope you enjoy.

Ah what a shot!
The colours really make this. That blue with the yellow, pure brilliance.
Well spotted and composed!
Borderering is great too!

The photo is an eye catcher. The sky just makes the flowers pop out. Nice picture box framing. Jen

Very dramatic shot!
I was sure i had made a comment onthis shot before, however I've not. The colour in the sky is fantstic and the composition and colour in the foreground make this picture perfect.
