My nemesis! :-) Just referring to a shot of my own of a sculpture I entered in the recent Abstract challenge, many thought it looked like a dandelion. Anyways, great shot, love the colors, DOF, crop.

I find myself wanted a great depth of field, but I do like it the way it is too. The centering of the entire image is awesome. Great job. 8.

Very nice photo! Crisp details of the dandelion seeds and their fluffy thing-y (whatever that white part is called). Maybe even oversharpened a tad but not enough where I'd deduct points. 9

Great shot--I can never get this clarity and sharpness in focus when shooting. Have to start using a tripod more. I'll read you're notes on how you did. It looks like you did some sharpening in the software. I had a shot like this too, but no where near as good as this.

so nearly submitted a shot starting from the same idea myself. So maybe I'll be a touch harsh on you having played with dandelion macros for a couple of days myself. It lacks a fine edge of impact (only just) - perhaps I mean more a sense of texture, a sense of really being close to the thing, involved with it. Fine detail in the seeds is good, but the finenness of the head itself is missing. Is this actually pushed up against the lens? Can't work out how you've lost no seeds, but at the same time they're not in the way ... 6

I know this picture has been done before (even I did it!) but yours is truly great! It shows so much detail and I love the cropping..everything is in place, you worked great together with nature! It resembles a mandala!
The colours are great, very peacefull, love the lighting (how did you manage to get all..fluffies (don't know the English word :P ) so white???
Superb this...(I imagine the picture with a larg wooden frame)

10!!!

I like this one, but keep looking for the 'parachutists' :-) that are pointing straight toward me.

This may be the best dandelion shot I've ever seen. Really great job!
