About the Image(s)

Took this recently in my yard. I was obsessed with shooting dandelions at one point. I took this with my iPhone and then processed it on my iPhone in PS Express.

The bent stem adds a lot of interest to the image. You got a lot of depth of field with the iPhone, but it looks like the closest seeds are out of focus, with the focal point being more toward the center of the seed pod. The seeds in the plane are very sharp. I would tone down the blue area in the lower left.   Posted: 06/14/2022 12:29:30

I love dandelion photos and I really like the curve of the stem in this one. The center of the dandelion seems to be out of focus and, for me, that's where it needs to be sharp. I would also suggest significantly darkening the background. I would have liked to have seen the whole dandelion rather than cutting off the right side.   Posted: 06/16/2022 07:05:03

I like the time of day of this shot. The stem leads to the direction of light and interesting patterns in the flower. I might suggest cropping the left side equal to the right.   Posted: 06/25/2022 18:06:22
