Field of Sunflowers

I think it is safe to say that all landscape photographers love sunflower fields. Approaching an enormous field of these beautiful flowers with a camera can be a bit daunting as there seems to be a great image everywhere.
 
Contrary to what I've heard, sunflowers do not always follow the sun. And in this giant field, there was only one that was directed toward the sun enough to be face-lit. While I still got good shots of the backlit flowers, the sunlight-facing one quickly grabbed my attention and consumed most of my shutter actuations.
 
As most of the plants were taller than me, this shot was taken from a step ladder. The higher vantage point allowed me to capture the front-most sunflower with the balance of the field going into a blur in the background.
 
A circular polarizer filter was used in the making of this photograph.
