[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took a photo of this flower in August when it was bright yellow. Now it's September and it has changed to a orange color. Several people didn't like my other photo with the blurry mountain background, so I used my landscape mode for this photo to make the mountain clear also. I had to lay on the ground to get this POV low enough to include the mountain in the shot.

Hi Lori,

Excellent shot and well composed.
I'm not sure of the Fstop used, maybe a F11-14 would have helped in the foreground.
If your camera can do it, focus 3/4 of the way and hold the focus with shutter halfway and recomposing and cont. with the shutter to get the shot.
I always do this in my landscape shots. Plus I use F11-14 depending on the situation, which gives clean focus from near to far which is ideal for landscape photography.


Very nice landscape, Lori.
Well composed, nice colours, well exposed
and good details.
Well done.

Very nice landscape capture Lori with great foreground details and colour. 7/10 Very well done.

Hi Lori, I saw Julie's view of the same mountain yesterday and your shot is just as good. I like how you have got the Sulphur Buckwheat and the mountain all nice and sharp. Goot POV, colours and details. Well shown, thank you.
