Default Just an ordinary sunflower

I planted seeds at the beginning of July myself and it took long time to grow since we had a very cold summer in Wisconsin. Now, it's warm and finally started blooming. This is the first one and a few more are ready to bloom. Just an ordinary sunflower, but makes me happy. And blue sky... Wonderful life...

E410 w/14-42mm, ISO100, Aperture priority: 1/800s, f/5.2

taking the rather 'ordinary' 14-42mm lens and taking a photo of an 'ordinary' sunflower (your words, not mine- grin) when properly exposed and composed yields, anything but an ordinary result.

Well done, Hiro!

Well said. My reaction to that image is that you could print it and keep it handy. Then when you're talking to an angry person you give it to them and ask them to look at it. Bet they won't stay angry...

Hi Ted-

Thanks for your compliments again. I just love the Olympus color. When Olympus quit using the Kodak sensor, I got a bit nervous to tell the truth. But, it still produces the beautiful sky blue.

Well done, excellent job.

"Just an ordinary sunflower, but makes me happy. And blue sky... Wonderful life... "

I also agree, blue skies should make everyone happy!

"When Olympus quit using the Kodak sensor, I got a bit nervous to tell the truth. But, it still produces the beautiful sky blue. "

I have always been pleased with the way the Panasonic sensor in my Oly E330 reproduces the blue skies we have so often here in Florida.

Thanks Steven!

When I saw the sunflower was blooming in the morning and the sky was perfect blue, I went back to the house and grabbed my camera. I'm glad I did it. The photo turned out exactly the way I saw.

Can't add to anything that's already been said. Excellent photo. A framer, for sure!
