As is.
This sunflower was huge, so it was pretty easy to get a closeup!
I’m not quite sure how the color came out this way because I used a wall as background, and the wall is a very light yellow. Somehow, unexpectedly, the lighting and macro made the background white.
A very happy surprise!

To date, this is one of my favorite images. I’ve had it printed on greeting cards (it looks even better printed…which again surprised me), have put it in photo books of works I like, and just recently had a photo tile printed so it can cheer up my desk at work…it helps a ton!

    gorgeous, lovely colour and light/shadow, and great title

  • Thank you! It’s definitely one of my favorites. I’ve printed it on several different things and it looks great and makes me happy when I look at it. I like happy.

    Made me smile :-)

  • That’s what I love about it (actually, this is one of the flowers I got in a “get well” bid after I had surgery)!
    I’m very glad it made you smile, too!
