Glad to hear about your Mum. I like the subdued tones and colours of this flower. Many would be tempted to increase the contrast and saturation to make the sunflower appear brigher but you have controlled the lighting well here.

*Phew*...SO good to hear your mum is a lot better, Colleen SmileSmile

Stunning shot you've got here, by the way. The defocused bits are particularly beautiful with that smooth blur. And what perfect focus on the flower.

This is such a pleasure to look at Smile
