Is it possible to take a portrait of a sunflower? If it is, that is what you have done here! The angle makes it look like the flower is looking off into the distance, perhaps remembering old times, and that makes the whole scene unique and really appealing. Your depth of field has been perfectly controlled to make the flower the centre of attention, despite there being so much other life in the scene. Composition on thirds is really appealing too.
Have a great weekend

The pic is not clear and a little blurry.
However, I like the flower is foreground and greenery in the background.
