This new image was an attempt to capture beautiful dandelion photos I have seen so often on the internet… test my “skills” a little bit. I really wish I would have had somebody to help me by blowing the dandelion pedals about, rather than waiting on the wind to do so. As the light changed every minute, I decided on changing compositions, the flowers I focused on, and the way I used the light. It came down to three images from my original 500 exposures. I couldn’t decide between the three so I had my fans on Facebook vote.
Here are the three they chose from.
Image #1 took the winnings! I love it! It isn’t quite what I was going for but is very close. I am pleased with the focus, light, and color combinations in this image. My backyard is full of photo opportunities!
