I love these things, But sadly they are classed as a weed.

I really think this the background to be well out of focus and the dandelion to be very sharp for this to work, because at the moment, even though the background is blurred it still is distracting.

I think this would of looked better if you had chosen a angle where you can't see that thing in the background, and was a worms eye view (from below, the oppsite of a eagle eyes view) because it would show some of the sky, and had some other colour then green in it.
What do you think?

Really nice focus. I also like how some of the seeds are missing. Great shot :)

I'm glad that you used a dandelion with with some of its seeds blown away. There's always a perception of beauty in imperfection. Not that the photo isn't gorgeous. :love:

I love making wishes on those!!! But It usually takes me more than one breath to blow all the little thingys off lol
MEandYouPhoto Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2009
This is really a wonderful image. I like the angle of the shot. I like the sharpness of the image. I like the depth of field that is in the background. I like almost every aspect of this except the visible building in the top right hand corner. The drastic change of color and a solid line that cuts across draws too much attention away from the wonder shot of this annoying yet beautiful weed ;-)

Very good shot.

Hey, Sorry for the delay but this has featured here [link]


waiting4cadence Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2009
This is really nice. It'd be even stronger if the top right corner was cropped out somehow.

Now this one is cool. Great shot anyway. But I think the white border just ruins everything. This is an awesome and a fantastic piece though. :)

Wow, all the colors are so amazing and bright! The focus is also incredible. It looks so real and life-like. I also like the way you blurred the background.

I actually don't have any critique for this :lol: It's a great shot.

I really really like this!

And I do really like the composition, but maybe that's because I'm just so normal. lol
I love how it looks so delicate. ^^
deltay Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2008
Thank you! It does look so fragile doesn't it? Like someone could make a wish and blow it away, any moment...
TrishyCakes Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2008  Professional Artisan Crafter
Very nice exposure you have here. It is very good use of depth of field. The only thing that I am not 100% loving is the composition. Its a little to centered and ordinary. It is nothing you can fix now, but as a future things try to take images from a couple different angles to see if you can find something.
deltay Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2008
Yeah, I think it actually got a little more centred after I cropped it, and flipped it (It was originally horizontal). The shots from different angles of this series (it was mainly a test shoot, not planned) didn't turn out too well in terms of DOF and etc. I'll definitely try that, about different angles next time I go take some photos. Thanks!
Uchiha-Kioko Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2008
Love this! It's such a brilliant shot and dandelions are wonderful!
deltay Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2008
Yeah, dandelions are kind of annoying when the seeds get everywhere and stick, but they're beautiful subjects of study for photography. Thanks!
Uchiha-Kioko Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2008
:) True...
Mahiro17 Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2008
Sooooooooo vibrant.

I want to blow all the seeds away!
deltay Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2008
but make a wish first ;)
Mahiro17 Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2008
