    • 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!

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

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

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

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

  10. 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! 🙂

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

  13. U found the perfect word:exhaustion! 🙂
