This was taken on a very bright sunny day ... the effect is a combination of exposure, shooting directly toward the sun, and I think some ash still in the air from the recent N. California fires. The flowers were lit by the sun, but the fence behind them was in shadow, making for the black background; there's only a slight tone adjustment, sharpening, and cropped a little from the top.

This is a nice addition to the sunflower oeuvre (the sunfloeuvre?)

there's something early 20th century primitive about it. Like some scary Man Ray version of Van Gogh (Mango Ray?)

I like how terribly unflowery they are. I'll hang them in my gallery
