Quote:There is something very earthy about this shot

Very astute. It's classic Still Life in many ways (I keep harping on about this but most European languages refer to the genre as Dead Nature), it's about beauty, death and decay all in one, but it has a directness that I don't usually seen in arranged flowers-in-vase images. You've gone in close so it's immediate, in your face. Van Gogh would approve, this is sunflowers as he saw them, a life force.
