Judges Comment

It works well in this photograph, how the the background almost fades away. Two flowers shown in their natural habitat. Lovely capture and execution.

My name is Kathy Newman. I took this with my old Rebel XTi, but I love the result and this has been one of my favorite sunflower pictures! I was in a grove of sunflowers (you can see other stalks in the background) and shot into the sun to highlight the stems. I live in the Antelope Valley in Southern California and love wandering around the desert taking pictures of the scenery. Thanks so much for honoring me with this Mark of Excellence!
