    ok...i'm weirder than weird...but i dig this... love the pollen on the leaf...the contrast of color..the flower being half there.......totally cool shot to me....

    and if you like it, and you took it...who cares if anyone else likes it.....this is a part of you..... (my opinion is not nessessarily that of a sane person...!!)

    I like it to.

    But what others may be reacting to is the "dead space" in the center of the picture. There is interesting stuff above, and below, but no definitive pathway to get between the two. Does that make any sense at all?

    I think its amazing. This is actually one of my favorite photographs ever posted on this forum. The leaf extending out of the shot really makes it great.

    I didn't respond to this shot the first time I looked at it ... but I keep getting drawn back to it, it is a very interesting composition and the negative space should probably be deterring me from it ... but I like it ... you are not alone :mrgreen:

    If I may add to that, your focusing point is dead on. I really like your comp in this shot. I have took plenty of Sunflowers, but never, ever thought of this kind of frame. Very nice photo.

    I think what works for it is that the petals are bending in the same shape as the leaf, and that's what allows this composition to work. That they are in "sync" with each other.

    ok im with errant star that i keep looking at this... something about it is a little odd and i cant figgure out what. Maybe its because there are 2 parts in focus and blur in between. I dont know I cant decide... It sure is keeping my attention though and its different. The boundaries need to be pushed now and then. Now im rambling :D

    Yeah... Dont confuse me like this, jk. Keep up the unique photos :)

    A truly unique shot (and that is so VERY rare). If the folks you know (outside cyberspace) are like the ones I know - they all think that the object should be shown in its entirety in the center of the shot with at least a couple of inches of blank space all the way around it. Ugh!!!! Don't listen to them. If you like it - then its good.
