This is one of your best...you can feel the heat..super large...does it need the flower(prob has a meaning I have missed)...try it flowerless takes the flow away at its position in the frame...I don't think it needs it.

Excellent Dave. I know the flower has significance, and for me it provides a stark contrast to the barren desert of landscape; a warning, a distant dream unattainable to the girl walking out of the frame. However I can't help but feel this is too dominating a structure in the frame - the dark line from which it stems is so strong compositionally it leads you eye to ball of fire, but here it stops. Perhaps by reworking this aspect so that the shadow and the figure are at the start of the lead in line may help (creating a spiral composition - shadow, girl, flower and then sun). As ever these are just my musings - and I am in awe of your PS skills!

Cheers peeps !

Just got in , time to get the cork out my a..se and hav fun again. That was stopping the mojo.

mmm , Take your point about the flower , its supposed to be bracing itself against the solar flare though. The energy flowing left to right.

I rather like its place and scale in its making , but your views on its inclusion are mucho appreciated. Specially you Adam , seen your perfect compositions many times !

I would do a variant but Im pretty sure I flattened it last night lol.

Have a goodun.

Plenty of fire going off in someone's life here Dave.I like the inclusion of the Sunflower,simply by name it adds even more heat to this image but...I reckon it could have been better placed,perhaps not quite over the top of the lonely figure,or maybe the figure could have been a little more to the left of the frame,creating that 'triangle of interest'...still,what do I know about this stuff...learning is fun though Smile
Nice to hear your Mojo has loosed itself from your rear end....mine has been lost forever,fell down a big black hole,never to return I think...my mojo...not my rear end Wink
