This image does have a nice summery feel to it. Sunflowers were the perfect choice to set that mood. The lighting is very attractive and the background gives this the impression of a newly painted scene.

Such wonderful strength in this sunflower moment of joy. Thanks for the smile! This image gives me such a feeling of warmth and fresh air. You have played in the light with perfection and have given us color perfection. Wonderful... you do have me dreaming of summer. Thanks for sharing.

Love what you've done here, Annie and it certainly makes one feel that Summer isn't too far away. I love the way you places the beautiful flowers, showing different stages and the softened background really sets it off well. Beautiful composition. Very imaginative. Suzanne

A beautiful heart warming image of these sun flowers,
The light is captured exquisitely on them and shows nice detail in the petals, excellent post processing skills create an overall lovely image. Summer would be nice but even spring will do for now lol.
Nice work

Excellent. You know excellent when you see. Your use of editing is superb. Composition, colors, lighting, depth of field make for an outstanding work. As for summer...I can relate. Spring will be here soon.

Lovely capture! I like the soft background which helps the subject to really stand out. Good color and use of light and shadow. Good detail in the flowers. Well composed.

I so enjoyed reading your artists notes.....and as much as I love snow I am enjoying this shot of the sunflowers. You really are missing summer.....because you picked the brightest and lightest color in the spectrum. The effects of yellow are warm and cheerful. This is one of most appealing color schemes in nature. A beautiful capture of the sun flowers with good light handling rendering incredible details. Your artistic background and complimentary colors of yellow/green compliment your photography beautifully. Outstanding work and thanks for sharing.

Comment from Life is but a dream.


Your image does have a dreamy quality to it and induces calm. Norway and Canada too are tough places to live when it comes to weather.

The image has your professional touch on it, a quality that I had loved right from the beginning of joining this site.

Your work is nothing short of amazing Annie.

You have just received a Cyber 6.

You may dream....but I Loathe summer! It's Spring here in Florida and the weather has been pure Perfection since October.
After Irma kicked our butts.. summer can take it's sweet time to get here. Sorry Cara.
Oct-May is my favorite time of year here.
Beautiful Sunflowers you created with your magical touch. You have fine focus, Exposure and a dreamy background. You need to work for Hallmark cards.
Nice work Cara:)

Oh me too AV....I am with you all the way there. This time of the year is the hardest I think. Once we're into March I can almost sense the tide turning but February?? Hell, I just want to get through it.

So good idea on your part to do these marvelous Sunflowers. Spot on w/ the yellow color but it's the way you've used the light that is just so lovely. CRISP w/ detail.....beautiful... and excellent exposure. Your colors simply sing of summer....including the soft green background. Your post work is, as always just gorgeous AV. Such a pretty piece so carefully put together.

You know I put out like thirty of those long metal reflectors (must be 4' tall) to keep the snow plow from getting too near any of my gardens or rock walls. There are now only 5 visible....OMG. so I know how you feel about your garden fence. Well, your pretty yellow flowers have brightened my day AV! Hang in there...we're on the down side of winter, yes??
