Wilted sunflower

Posted by

My wife got a bouquet of sunflowers for her birthday. As they wilted, I saw the photographic possibilities. The background is a patio stone, though it looks like a texture overlay so popular today. I thought the squarish cropping better fit the image that the standard full frame.

Nicely done. The background texture is nice. I would take a picture of that and save it to my background file. I like the strong diagonal of the sunflower.
