Wasn't sure what to call this photo. lol. But here's a huge sunflower that grew out in Fruitport, Michigan. Purely, by seeds that had dropped from bird feeders. When I finally saw the thing, it was already dying (as you can see below). But I thought it would make a great B&W shot. What do you all think?

Needs more contrast. And I have a feeling that this would have worked better in bright vibrant colors. Did you take a color shot that you could post for comparison.

Thanks for your input. Here's the color version of the shot, as requested.

My only comment is perspective... I think the composition could be improved by finding a more interesting camera angle, perhaps from the ground looking up or more of straight-on shot with less DOF (to emphasize the monster flower of death itself).

^ Thanks for the tip! One thing, I am trying to work on (along with lighting) is angles. I should of took more pictures of that flower, from all sorts of angles. If I get out there again, before it's completely gone, I will try again with it.
