Daily Deviation

Given 2013-11-13
Wayside Finds 111 by =Frank-Beer is a beautiful macro - fresh, crisp and bright. ( Suggested by cloe-patra and Featured by Kaz-D )
:iconyoshi-matsumura:
Wonderful shot.
Good focus on the flower, extremely beautiful macro; the droplets and ice on the dandelion seem so unreal! They're too beautiful.
The blue background is really beautiful as it has nothing to mix with the colors of the flower, but I actually think it could be black, to do more contrast (if that's not the sky, because then it's not really possible, right).
I like the way it shows a "cut" of the flower, with some of the seeds already out of it, showing only the few ones that remained. The vivid colors are amazing, the brightness is just right , the focus is absolutely stunning.
What do you think?

This is a beautiful shot.

I was first amazed by the quality of the focus. The details are great here. Wonderful macro.
The originality of your shot is the way you cut it. I found great the way you decided to photograph half a dandelion and a few seeds.
To my mind the background is okay, because blue, green and white fit together here. The touch of brown brought by the seeds makes it gorgeous.
It might be not very original. Indeed everybody knows about dandelions, but it looks kinda surreal here and I have to say that I never had seen such a dandelion, nor imagine it.

Good job rav !

What a truly beautiful photo!  The focus is great, the composition is lovely, the topic is nicely chosen and you've drawn everything from it that it has to give.  But what truly sets this apart, other than all those things, is the lighting.  Truly spectacular lighting :iconloveloveplz:

Oh. My. Gosh. Everything--from the sharp details of the water drops, to the smooth silkiness of the background. I'm staring at it trying to see if there's anything you could have done better on this shot, but there isn't. Great shot!
