Like the others, I'd like to see a bit more light on the flower, but you've done a very creative crop. Good work.

Would love to see the flower a bit more luminous but otherwise...I like it.

Very effective cropping choice! Your processing has really made the yellow pop too. Sweet!

You got a really nice shot out of your original. I like the graduated colors on the bottom leading to the nice blue. Good crop.

I love it as is.. I get the feeling of the flower looking into the image for the light , so I would not illuminate it anymore. great work !

here comes the sun... using shadows/highlights you could of gotten better light on the front of the petals but it is still well composed and nice to look at

very nice composition - I might have made the flower a touch lighter.

Needs more blue gradient in the background and a little illumination/contrast on the flower would make this gorgeous.

Sunrise! He, he, cool! 7 feet tall! That's impressive.

I love sunflowers! We have them all over here in Utah, but not many of them get seven feet tall! Your perspective here is wonderful, and the background incredible! Nice work!

That's gorgeous! Colors overall are a little muddy; see the green hue in the brighter sky especially. There's a LOT of potential in this image!
