The most obviously textured part could be a little lighter, but this is very nice.

this is a very nice photo... the texture in the center of the sunflower works very well... I think a fill flash would possibly accent that texture quite a bit as well :) = 7 - jmsetzler

The flower looks dull. I tried adjusting the levels in Photoshop and found that brightening the image this way gives the petals a translucent look, you can see the light coming through them. I don't think it matters that the background becomes very bright as well. As it stands it's a good pic but a bit dull and flat which can be fixed easily

I think this is great! Very well done. I think it may be a tad dark (foreground), but I like it. GREAT job! 10 from me - I would hang this up.

The best texture here is not lighted really well. 6 nards656

a little more focus on the center of the flower would have strengthened this one for me.

This is an O.K. shot. Well focused and framed, but overly dark, especially the center of the flower. This is often the case, when your background is very light and foreground is dark, the camera guesses badly. I think the petals turned out very well and if that were all that were in the frame, your score would be higher. Had enough? 6 Swash

Beautiful photo! I love the exposure you used. The colors are very subtely rendered.

For texture I think this should be showing the actual texture of the leaves and center. I'd like to see this close up. However, I think it's a good sunflower shot.

Great shot

sunflower is a good subject for this challenge. i think you could have done more to bring out the texture by zooming in closer (the leaves at the bottom are distracting), maybe even show only part of the flower if your camera allows you to get that close. also play with the brightness and contrast, if you increase both a bit a lot more of the texture and detail in the middle of the flower (not sure what that's called - darn english as a 2nd language thing) becomes visible. -- gr8photos (4)

Needs fill-in flash. Those petals should be shining yellow!
07/23/2002 02:44:00 PM
This is really cool. The petals look like they are painted on. I would have cropped out the leaves on bottom making space at top larger, but that's my personal opinion. cthenk

Slightly dark but the detail is present in the shot.
07/23/2002 02:23:00 AM
most excellent! studio shot? mousie?
07/23/2002 12:43:00 AM
nice picture, but texture is not my first thought...
07/22/2002 11:48:00 PM
A blue sky would have been awesome on this! Good focus on the center of the flower; I have found that to be difficult. karmat

nice composition.
07/22/2002 11:00:00 PM
I like this a lot. I think I would like it a little more brightly lit, but that's a pretty minor complaint. I like the way you framed it and how you took an unorthodox viewpoint.
07/22/2002 03:49:00 PM
Pretty shot, good detail. Seems just a tad dark... might be my monitor though.
07/22/2002 03:29:00 PM
I like very much. It«s very nice
07/22/2002 02:28:00 PM
under exposed.

i love sunflowers!
07/22/2002 12:29:00 PM
nice shot; a little more light for contrast
07/22/2002 11:40:00 AM
I'm glad I didn't stick to my sunflower... You did a much better job and I like the way you include several of the flower's textures in the image. 6 beegee

Nice ! A liittle brighter to show more detail would work better. Still really nice. = 8 Shiiizzzam

Nice... texture focusing could be better
