I meant to share these a while ago, but only got the change to try and process the rest recently. Even with HDR, I couldn't really work out the kinks in most of the images...not in a reasonable amount of time anyway. These are the three that came out decently well:I like the first one best. The blown out highlights of the sun work, and somehow it seems to make the field look larger and gives a feeling of a vast expanse of sunflowers....
Yeah, I like having the sun blown out a bit more in these shots. I think if I had the proper highlight exposure, it could have worked with a fully realized sun...but, my exposures weren't that good, and this just looks better.
I do have to say...that is one of the largest fields of sunflowers I've ever seen. Even standing there up on the road, I couldn't quite tell where it ended.
These were the squat little sunflowers, too...they never topped about five feet, and on average were more like three feet. Awesome little things.
