Your image is too busy, I find it hard to focus on any of the elements which distract from each other. 4.

I don't think the car adds anything to this shot.

Compostion: 5 I just dont understand the use of the car. Concentrating more on a single sunflower of a small group would have made it more appealing
Technical: 5 Seems just a little flat or washed out in color. Rethinking exposure and histogram can fix this
Appeal: 3 I just dont understand the use of the car
Challenge: 5 I would have done a macro on the sun flower
Overall: 4

A good idea. Flowers can make a fine subject for photos. In this shot though, I find most of my attention is drawn to the car, which doesn't seem like was your intent. This seems like a case where simplifying the presentation could strengthen the image. Color wise, it seems a little on the flat side. Maybe just some simple adjusting in post processing, some levels and color adjustments could make a big difference.

the angle and composition of this shot seems a bit mangled, also the contrast seems a little low. good luck - 5.

I can't help but be a bit harsh on your picture. I give you credit for getting out and shooting and please continue to do so. Critisism: The old car and fence post overpower the sunflowers and they become lost in what may have been a much better landscape. suggestion: Get in closer to your main subject, use a large aperature if possible as this will blurr out unwanted background. Like I said, keep shooting and enjoy photography.

Car seems to distract from the titled subject a bit.
