My daughter Ellen and a dandylion in the garden.

I am very fond of this picture but I don't expect it to do too well. Anything above 5.5 would be a bonus and keep the average climbing.

Post challenge - I have to say I am somewhat bemused by the score although I guess maybe it doesn't have universal appeal as Teafran said. To score so low with such great comments from people I really respect is confusing?

I know I said I wasn't sure it would score well I just didn't think this low.

Oh well! Try again next time.

A good solid image that is crisp, sharp and properly framed and composed - a technical success in every way. From an artistic standpoint, it is an intersting image but of less than universal appeal. A good entry into the challenge.

They knew that their world was in trouble the moment the giant mystical beast had chosen their land, and had plucked it from the earth where it had stood for all their known history. They had tried their very best to prepare themselves, to set themselves for the coming catastrophe that they had seen happen to so many other lands that had been around them before.

Now, now it was their turn, and they braced for coming apocalypse.

Then, with a mighty storming of winds, the giant creature blew out an epic breath, and they held on for dear life, desperately trying to resist the cyclonic forces that would rip them from their world.

Miraculously, most of them managed to do so, this time. Most of them, that is, but one, and with a heart-wrenching shriek and cry of despair, the little fluff lost her strength of limb and will, and was blown clean off the face of the land, to be carried off to whatever end was to be her fate, and they never saw her again.

This has commercial appeal for sure. I can see this as a full page ad for an ecology type product.

Very good composition, and great catch with the one flying away.
