This afternoon, I went out to the backyard to take some photos of the sunflowers. Since I posted about them a couple weeks ago, they've really gone into overdrive. The tallest stalks have a cluster of blooms at the very top, and then several individual blooms below, poking out from spaces between leaves and stalk.
My intention was to get some pictures from an angle that put the flowers against the bright blue sky we had today.
I managed to get some acceptable shots. But there was one that had an extra element that, if I'd planned for it, I don't think I could have improved on the result.
I swear, this is the original image. No Photoshopping was involved.
