I visited a gorgeous Sunflower field and as you know a photographers brain runs in overdrive at so much color and so many blooms. That even we can mess things up at times. I over exposed this image, it but loved the one sunflower that stood out. So The Daily Texture to the rescue once again. I used a texture and played about with blending modes etc. When I got the image where I liked it I added digital effects for a painting look which worked well with the texture.
I am always inspired by Darren's beautiful work with flowers! I love how he used a square crop with this to really bring the focus onto the flower bloom. Thank you Darren, for sharing your gorgeous sunflower art with the Daily Texture readers! -- Jai
