I know that my sunburned sister didn't do so hot here on this site, but I thought that perhaps I could pull it off with this photo of me on a very windy day in early fall. Besides, she's such a show off that I take all opportunities to upstage her.

Fabulous color, PJ! You must be using a polarizer? She's a lovely and I like that song too. I liked the other shot. It was quite creative. I like it when people try new things.

Your offering to us couldn't have come at a better time, It's Raining Cats and Dogs outside and it looks great on my desktop. I wouldn't mind seeing a photo of two Sisters (hearts) show'in off. Caught by the angle of the shot, surounded by blue sky and green leaves. She's bashful and getting ready for prom nite. Beautiful work PJ! Mahalo!

Sunflower will always look like a flower showing off because of the size and the big core. Nice capture here and the background is ideal.

She does look like she's flying. I like them better than the Pigeon sisters from "The Odd Couple," since you've been talking about old movies. I liked the song too that your title suggests. Just a great photo with excellent narrative and great imagery, both in the eyes and the mind. Good one PJ

Hey PJ,
I just love the contrast between the blue background-sky, and the yellow 'sunny', (~8
The things that could be improved on, in my opinion, but these are minor details, are the turned leaf on the left, and the shadow on the lower half of the flower (why leave your main subject partly in the shade),
Overall, a lovely image, (~8

Thanks for sharing

Great sunflower shot! I like it because there is some character to the crooked petals. Nice lighting too.
Well done!

Well, now you have me singing that song in my head. That's ok...I like that song. I like the picture too. The sunflower looks like it is standing over me, and watching me..waiting for me to make a mistake so it can pounce on me. HELP! It's the giant sunflower monster! Sorry. I got carried away.
