Thank you, Helen. That’s a wonderful compliment. I’m really glad you like it.

It’s certainly the new angle of view !
I like the texture and its detail.

The flower itself beckoned me in at this angle. It’s interesting to discover something so familiar in a new light. I’m very glad you like it!

Mother sunflower is planting her seeds in the ground to produce next years offspring. Great image Melanie.

Thanks, Finn! Yes, poor, tired Mama.

Great shot – at first view, I thought it was the stump of a tree trunk. I agree with Helen – nice original view! 🙂

Great title for this most interesting view……….!

Thank you, Pam. This time of year, I’m seeing lots of tired sunflowers, and I identify quite well with them. 🙂

Haha sometimes I feel like this too! You’ve captured the heaviness so well.

🙂 I know exactly what you mean… Thank you for the compliment.
Plenty of birds must have eaten from that sunflower.

Yes, it was a giant one. They must have had a feast!

Thank you, Elena.
What I like about this is how you’ve captured the plant’s nobility. It’s a really sympathetic shot and very original. Love it.

I am always so appreciative of your feedback, Richard. You have such a wonderful way of verbalizing the intent or certain elements of an image. I’m really grateful for that! I also thank you for the compliment! 🙂

This is exquisite, Melanie. At first look I thought you were presenting an image made with an electron microscope. Wonderful detail, and monochrome is, to my eye, the perfect choice for this.

Wow, what a wonderful thing to say, Gary. I am really so encouraged by your feedback, thank you!

Yes, this is a signature Lemony interpretation. I can feel the weight of the flower sinking into itself from exhaustion. The processing is fantastic. You got there with this one! 🙂

Sometimes when you can identify with your subject it’s a lot easier 🙂 , as though trying to capture yourself in a way. I’m glad you like this one.
November 26, 2012 at 12:53 pm
U found the perfect word:exhaustion! 🙂
