Beautiful- very crisp and sharp. I like how the background is brighter closer to the flower, then darkens toward the edge of the photo. Very nice!

The less is more effect works well. A simple yet powerful subject.

Your little sunflower kicks ass! I only wish that bottom petal didn't have that gap between the other one but that's nitpicking. Really this is super. 9.
