I love the POV and the way the flower leans into the picture. Focus is perfect and DOF effective in showing that great sky blue cloudy background. An interesting and arty shot Lori, very well done.

This one is realy marvelous.
The contrast is very good with the deep blue sky, and the brown.
On the flower is such a bright light, it seems as it is golden in the middle.

Ithink your picture is marvelous, with this blue sky. I like your composition. TFS:
P.S: i relly think that's a good image, it's not a reward for the point you had given to me (sorry for my english)

Excellent capture Lori. The pov is amazing and add hugeness to the plant making it look even bigger. The dof is spot on - lot of details in the plant and well blurred background. The low horizon and the clear blue sky is very good - help, I am running out of superlatives;-).
I think this one would be great in size XXl framed on a wall.

Wow, that's some great DOF and POV. Clarity is excellent as well. I like how you've cropped to take up the entire frame, exaggerating the size of the flower.

Great compo Lori with the seed head low to the horizon and showing up well against the cloudy blue sky. The lighting looks terrific and the plant nice and sharp. Well done.

This is really beautiful photo Lori.
I love the POV and colours, great BG and light. The main subject is a bit underexposed, but this can be advantage.
I think this should go to my favs.
I like it very much.

Lovely shot Lori. I like the contrast between the white/grey of the flower and the blue of the sky in the BG. A sort of 3D effect here. Excellent sharpness and light. Very well done!

This is a sensational capture. I love everything about this. You have done a wonderful job in the composing of this shot. Excellent light, awesome POV. DoF is spot on and the BG is magnificent. Congrats!
I have a partial answer to the ident question, it is definatly a Goat's Beard (Tragopogon) wether it is one native to you or a european export is another question , hope this is of use in the super image, sharp of colour and focus and beautifully presented with the low POV allowing it to be seen against the clear blue of the sky TFS

Nice POV including the natural environment. Would have liked to see a bit of fill flash but it's a minor nit. Very well done.
