I guess it is unanimous then, lose the truck.

Truck is WAY distracting. Plants are ordinary. 25% is "plain ole" sky.

The pickup truck in the background pulls your eye away from your botanical subject - the sunflowers.

I find the car in the background to be very distracting.

here's where one needs a friend to hold a plain sheet behind the very nice flowers to neutralize the background..

There have been lots of sunflower shots in this challenge, and generally I've been a sucker for voting high on them. I do like the flowers here. Too bad the truck in the background had to cause so much distraction. Perhaps get down low and shut up high next time so that the sky is in the background instead of the trucks.

Sun flowers and their leaves are okay. The truck inthe background is a major distraction and pulls the rest of the image pretty far down.

Oh Damn. . . couldn't you move the truck and car?!!! This is a fantastic shot but IMHO tarnished by those two background colors! BOL

The background ruins this photo, you should have placed the camera lower, pointing it upwards so the photo would be more simple with "clean" background, better luck next time!

The background truck must have been intentional but I don't see the point. It looks as though you had an overcast day and I think a brilliant blue sky for the background would have been better, but maybe you never got the chance. As it is, I think the flowers lose their impact by the busy background. Great focus and sharpness on the plants themselves.

Nice sharp and colourful sunflowers but background distracting.

suggest you try to avoid a car in the background next time, it spoils the image for me.

The truck in the background takes away from the beauty of the sunflowers.

The red truck is very distracting, my eye goes right to it.

The red truck in the background is a big distraction. Also, would rather have had a close up look at these flowers. As it is, they are kind of dark and lack detail.
