This is my first try at a dandelion / seedhead, so I'm not expecting much. I am pleased with the colors, bokeh and DOF. The compositon could be a bit stronger. I hope the voters will identify with the "leaving the nest" emotive. We shall see!

A truly excellent piece of work, Catherine! The color and detail is exquisite; the shimmering haze of the seedhead behind is such that it just draws so much more attention to the one breaking free. Underrated IMNSHO

Right then, joke's on me as I now have to plough through 564 images and bump them all (yes, all of them) up. There'll be a third run through for fine tuning. It's day two now and I'm running late, sorry.
