Top-notch color and detail, Joe! Again, the dark background shows off the blossom beautifully. Maybe just a touch more space for the flower in the frame. Well done!

Another beauty in this series, Joe- lovely color and detail, and a striking image against the black background. Agree with Ron- just a touch more space around the flower so all the edges are included. Nice work!

I know better, but sometimes I post at night when I'm tired and get careless! My bad. Thanks to you both, always, for your comments and input.

Either a touch more space, or just a slight adjustment of the three petal tips that touch the edge, would do the trick, Joe. Gold on black is always a beautiful and dynamic combination, and the beautiful sun rays appearance of the sunflower is such an uplifting design anytime!
