Judith, this is a terrific image, but you might want to do a little fix up. Looking at it further, I noticed it seemed a wee bit tilted down toward the left side. When I looked at it more closely, a tiny section along the top (that is larger on the left) was noticeable (it probably should be cropped away.) Otherwise, it's a spectacular scene. #1178151

Kathy, I am intrigued with your statement that this image is tilted. How can you possibly know that? These sunflowers may well be growing in a field that is sloping. I would agree that perhaps the slither of whatever it is on the horizon would perhaps be less distracting if cropped but other than that the image looks just fine. Well done Judith. #7935865

There is a sunflower farm near me that should be opening in the next week or two. Hoping that I can get a great shot like this one. Wonderful image,Judith! #11914903

Lovely image Judith, agree with Kathryn, slight rotate clockwise and shave the top. This will let imagination run away to infinity..... #12036333
