Sunflower field at sunset

This evening, on the way home, I passed close to a beautiful field of sunflowers, so I decided to park my car to make some photos... it has been funny to discover that there were already two other photographers who were doing the same :)
This photo has an HDR look, but it's not. It's a single shot with the needed brightness/contrast/fill_light tweak needed to compress the dynamic range and brighten the shadows without burning the highlight.
Naturally I did different photos to find the sweet spot to capture the maximum detail both in highlight and shadows.
