The sunflowers have grown very tall in the heat this year, the tallest I've ever had. They're grouped around the bird bath in the back yard. This shot please my eye, but then I know these sunflowers. I predict it'll get shot down for busyness, weird composition/cropping. Oh, yeah, & because this won't qualify as a DOF kind of shot for most people, but I like the way the in-focus bits lead my eye around the comp.
