No time to comment this morning but couldn't help myself on this one, Les. I think you've done it here--the red background is simply smashing. Looks like detail from an extremely expensive hand-painted designer plate or something. Hard to do a sunflower freshly but you have succeeded.

Love the fuzz, light on the fuzz, medium sharp petals (pe "t" als), and the water drops. The red background (another hunk o' paper?) is great with this. Each color stands out sharply against the one behind it.

Bob, no paper used this time.
I exploited the existing color in the BG and enhanced it in post production.
