from the critique club:
Congratulations on your wonderful shot. The composition is above reproach. The only fault I find is on the technical end, however, you may have lacked the tools. Let me explain. A shot like this is a very big deal and can easily overtax the capabilities of a regular camera. You see, the eye expects the foreground to be sharp. I assume that your camera is a fixed lens and that f8 is the smallest you can close it. A shot of this magnitude requires the smallest possible aperture along with a bigger sensor and of course, a super wide angle lens.
You did fantastic with what you had and despite its minor flaw, I would not hesitate to show it off. Outside of that, the picture is warm and imparts a good feeling of plenty and of course, the colors are just nice. I have the Canon 10D and I can close my lens to f22, yet I would still need a good wide angle. Great dof go together with wide angles.
And read the comments you received, they are mostly positive. You have a wonderful camera and there are many shots you can take to perfection. Take full credit for pulling off a wonderful image that many would have ran away from. dan

I spend a lot of time thinking of interesting subjects, and here you might very well nab a ribbon with a shot of weeds. -sigh- 9

Would have been really sweet if you could have kept those daisies in close from moving.

Very good placement on you picture. It really brings the viewer into the scene. I hear dandelion wine is very good!

the closer you get, the more out of focus it is. Its a good shot snd I like the Idea, but its a little blurry

Great shot. The tree line in the distance really acts as an intermediary between the field and sky. DOF and contrast is excellent.... 8

What is this? A field full of dandelions? If so, I've never seen so many in one place at one time. I think you applied lots of sharpening to make it look like the background was in focus but the trees in the background are showing halos and the dandelions in the middle of the bunch are fuzzy.

That's a lot of dandelions! Good work of showing deep DOF.

I love what you've done here. The yellow/green/blue/white makes a dazzling photo.

Hmm, probably the best of the scenary images for this. Good job, the front flowers look in focus and so does the horizon. Without the trees it would be hard to tell.

Cool colors and composition. I like it.

It's a shame about the compression. This might have been an instant to drop a few pixels on either side. I'd really like to see the original- it looks beautiful.
