I love the color in this and your use of the relatively shallow DoF to bring attention to specific areas of the flower and leaves. The brilliant red color in that smooth bokeh really make the subject pop. I believe every photograph should be viewed through the lens of the artist's intent, and I feel yours is clear here and that you did a great job achieving your objective.

Thanks so much for your warm words....The sunflower is such a heavily photographed model, I wanted to do a portrait in a more unexpected way and try to grab the benefits of my less used auto chinon lens....I'm glad it resonated for ongoing treasure hunt!
