One curiosity from wikipedia:

this is big and bold an bright. Van Gogh eat your heart out!
I like the little bee too. It gives us a sense of scale (although of course we know how big sun flowers are).

Ciao Viniocio, che foto stupenda, gioiosa, piena di colore, luce e vita...esattamente come il tempo qua a Milano, bello grigio, umido e con un nebbia che si affetta con il machete!
i colori sono stupendi.

You're right, there are great graphics inside this picture !
I see a smile into the flower itself, balancing with the blue sky.
Great compo, a picture I'd have like to make !

Fantastic photo, Vinicio, perfect choice of this part of the sunflower for the shot. Strong colors. Maybe I'll try a 90-degree rotation to see how it looks in vertical orientation. Congratulations and regards, Daniel

Nice break for winter. I like the bright colours of sunflowers. And I think your composition is something special I haven't seen before. I'll keep that in mind if I have a chance to shoot sunflowers next summer.

Such a bright summer image posted in the middle of winter! Your shot is simple but very well composed. I especially like the yellow colour here - it is so enlightening.
