Default Sunflowers

Some practise shots in a field of sunflowers in the Charente, central France. Could not resist No.3 as he was facing the wrong way - a rebel for sure. All feedback welcome.

Nice series Dyane, #2 & #4 are my favs f18 has to keep things sharp eh?

Yes I can see why you like #3, anything that bucks the trend has to be good!

#4 imho, if shot at wider angle would make a stunning picture with row upon row and plant upon plant going into the distance.

These photos made me smile! Sunflowers are such happy flowers! #2 would be a great computer desktop wallpaper.

cheerful pics. #3 is my favorite. you could have improved it a bit by not cutting off the bottom pets and setting it offcenter a bit to give it a lil more impact and context within the field. nice ones!

Hi Clint - exposure was on Auto Mode. First time out with the new camera so I was trying to get some good shots and get used to the camera - it will take me a while. All advice welcome for the exposure.
