This was shot with a Nikon D850, 105 MM lens at f5, 1/1000 second , ISO 250. The relatively high shutter speed was due to some wind. As either shade or a diffuser is helpful with these flowers and I did not have shade, I used a diffuser.
Very pleasing composition, Kathy. I love the buds, and the position of the open sunflower in between. The background is nicely out of focus. The lighting is very nice.
Beautiful color, great clarity, lovely composition!
Beautiful flowers, very well exposed and diffused
