Artist's Description

I dont’ think that perfection means beauty. More often than not, the imperfect is more interesting and attractive, with flowers as much as anything else.

I shot this sunflower on an overcast day, against the sky, and using fill-in flash. I thought it turned out sharp and detailed, but unnatural looking. The textures and shapes really appealed to me, so I took the opportunity to have some fun with the image. Why not make it more unnatural looking, but my way.
I converted it from RAW and postprocessed it in hdr software; then took it into PhotoImpact. I then added a hint of sepia toning, then a fading filter to soften it a bit. Finally, I added a little more contrast. I’m very pleased with the results.

Canon EOS 450D 18-5mm lens with polarizer filter and on-camera flash.
