Photo thoughts--- Wild Sunflowers, how I love you so! You can always count on a few good shots when you see them, they are sort of the old "I need a good shot, fall back on wild Sunflowers!" sort of thing. For this image, I found a rather large grove of them growing at Cherry Creek State Park here in Colorado. I loved the subtle light and how it was playing against the petals and also the background colors. I went ahead and photographed this using my Tamron 200-400mm lens along with a Puffin Pad. I am pretty happy with it...also I have a second version of this shot too which I will upload at some point.

Nice depth of field, and the colours are really nice. Did it require much work in Photoshop?
