About the Image(s)

I have always wanted to get a good image of a dandelion. I happened to come across one that wasn't perfect, but had nice detais and character when I was shooting landscapes. I put my black jacket behind it and used my 16-300 lens at 300 mm focal length. I also did some contrast adjusment and detail enhancement in post processing. Other settings: f/6.3, 1/200 sec. and ISO 2000.

I love this image on the black background. It really enhances the dandelion fluff. If it weren't solid you would lose the beauty of flower. I also think it is more interesting, that some of the dandelion is missing.   Posted: 01/13/2022 13:48:55

Nice image Cindy. It's strong image that tells more of a story in it's 'fading' stance and blends well with black background. Nice detail and contrast. I might tend toward cropping a little to shorten that stem.   Posted: 01/17/2022 11:14:25
