I concentrated on the head of a black-eyed Susan for my Portrait piece.  I liked how the background petals dissolved into simple colors and shapes while creating a ring of lines emanating from the head.  I also liked how the dark browns of the florets have a fiery red tone along the edge where the light influences their color.  Tiny hairs and individual pieces of pollen can be seen within the zone of sharpness that starts at the focal point at the top of the head.
