Challenge: Free Study 2009-05 (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-50D
Lens: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro
Date: May 29, 2009
Aperture: f 2.8
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/250 sec
Date Uploaded: May 29, 2009

inspired by a Photographer in Gent, Belgium.
I saw her picture during the winter and thought to try it myself. I had to wait until spring for the dandalion to be available :) Unfortunately I can't remember her name.

[Jun. 3rd, 2009 11:55:03 AM]

I'm sure there will be some questions on how I did this: the lines are fishing lines taped to a piece of glass. The dandalion paddles are placed with tweasers in position. The shot is taken downwards against a piece of paper which creates the bokeh background. Illuminated by 2 flashes, one for the background one for the lines/paddles. The tricky part was to get the reflections on the glass under control.
