Greetings from the Critique Club!

Initial impression: Very Impressionistic, reminds me of Monet.

Technical: As it's both quite macro and abstract, not strong in terms of traditional composition. However, did you finished very well so can't ignore that. Looks like you did just enough post-processing to help the image pop. My screen tends to show noise and I am really not seeing any here. Wouldn't change any of your camera settings, they work together beautifully for this shot.

Artistic: Sunflowers make great subjects, they're huge and colourful. (Think my Golden entry from yonks ago, of a sunflower, was one of my first 5s...or close to being so!)I like that you used such a long exposure to get this shot. It really does look like it could be flames.

Overall: Lovely vivid image with lots of movement apparent. Very glad you finished as well as you did. Good work, keep it up!

Feel free to PM me with any questions,

Nicely done. The colors are really rich and the motion is quite evident here.

Don't you hate just barely missing that magic 6? Did very well, however.

Did you run this through some sort of de-noising filter? Looks terrible, sorry.
