This is such a treat! Thank you again for all the votes, comments, and critique. I do read all of them and take them to heart. I don't think I would have ribboned at all if not for all the commenters. I really do learn a lot from them.

Thanks again! DPC rocks!

amazing, one of my favs in this challenge!!
07/14/2007 12:11:24 PM
Good lighting and focus. Composition a bit too centred for my tastes, could maybe have had the dandelion closer to the bottom right corner.

Great composition, background, and sharpness of seeds. The angle really helps this shot as compared to the ordinary vertical view.

Perfect bokeh and I'm at a loss for the patience you must have had to execute this amazing shot. B/W treatment really helps this work. Well done.
