I think uncalabrated monitors would see this as a bit dark and lacking coloration. May have suffered from that a bit.

Good luck !

Really, really nice. Definitely not a photo everyone would think to take and you've pulled it off perfectly. The detail, focus and back-lit colors are great. And the shallow dof and color of the background really enhances and blends perfect with the subject. Gorgeous. 10

Beautiful. Background colors accent the main subject. perfectly. Composition is nearly perfect. I'd hope this at least makes the top 25.

I love the quality and colour of light through the dandelion head, especially where there is a pale background behind. I also like the way that the background has both light and dark. I am not sure that the composition, in terms of where is light and where is dark in that background, feels quite balanced but it still works well. 8

Did everyone have this idea? This is one of the best dandelion shots, though. 8

Wonderfull silhouett. I just wish there was a little more light around the dandilion. That would have helped it pop out a little better. This is still a great capture with a great amount of depth. Very nice!

This is really nice! There are several dandelion shots in this challenge, this one best I think. Really nice Bokeh, excellent focus, composition, and repeting forms and texture. Nice warm color. 10

Quite the Dandy Dandelion. Very nicely done. Beautiful image. Will it bring home a ribbon? I wouldn't be surprised. <8>

Now that they are sorted, I need to bump this up a notch <9>

This was a popular shot, but I think yours is the best capture, well done. I particularly like dark edges of the picture, it's not just sky in the upper half.

This is fabulous. Like how the flower is used to blot out the sun. 10
