Pretty sure this is ironweed that has gone to seed. It is all over in the field next to my house.

Oh wow, Shawn, I like this one. Not able to yea or nay the ID. I love that you have one that has gone to seed, and the empty shell where once there was a bloom/seed pod. The background really is nice and smooth, and supports the subject well. I think, if it were mine, I might would crop just a bit off the top. Very nice.

Hi Shawn! I’ve never seen this flower before. It’s really beautiful, I love all the different tones of brown and like @Shirley_Freeman said the two different progressions of flower. It kind of looks like a sepia image. It’s very elegant.

It’s so interesting…I’d really like to see the shadows opened up for the detail.

Looks good, Shawn. The empty head and the “big brush” are a fine combo, along with the nice arch in the stem.
