[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Black-eyed Susans are a common sight in the fields of Indiana in mid-summer. This one, in particular, caught my eye. As the color slowly fades from this flower, I am reminded that the glory of summer will also fade soon.

This photo is dedicated to all TNers who would like summer to hold on as long as it can.

Taken at Summit Lake State Park, near New Castle, Indiana.

Wonderful image Randy,
Love the composition you have chosen. The beautiful bloom is very sharp and detailed with very natural color. The BG, is slightly blurred yet still recognizable. Nice job!!

Hi, Randy,

a great close-up with matching background! the composition and the details are also excellent. thanks for sharing this refreshing photo : )

Bonjour Randy,
Cette publication, bien composée, aurait été nettement meilleure avec un meilleur cadrage n'amputant pas le sujet principal et un peu plus de profondeur de champ afin de valoriser les détails.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
