I agree that this is a great shot but I'd do a bit more contrast too to make it an awesome shot.

Please don't blow them in my yard. I have enough of my own!.. :) Nice capture!

This is a great shot.

Love the unusual blue bg and subtle pinks of the flower. Cinema quality, probably not, but nice image.

what strikes me about this shot is the odd color combination - I like it - well lit, crisp focuss, yep, well photographed.

Perhaps this is because I'm a Dutchie, but I don't really understand this title at all in combination with the photo. Guess I should look this up in a dictionairy, lol.

Nice shot. Could use a bit more contrast. You could try a different point of view next time.

I really like dandelion shots and this is a good one. Love the tones. And, well, if everyone else thinks it's about dandelions, it will just leave more room in the theater for those of us that know it's really about a personal struggle.

this seems like a macro photographer's (admittedly clever) attempt to shoehorn his photo into the challenge. It's a cool title, though. It would make for a good poem.

This makes me think of a book adapted into a film. I like the title and the image of the dandelion isn't that unusual, but it fits the challenge in my opinion. 7

what I am looking for in this challenge is for a creative 'wow' shot that would go on a movie poster. I think that's what the challenge is all about...this might not work for a movie, but as a photo it is superb...stunning in fact, so I will mark you higher on that basis
