These backlit grasses and knapweed seed heads made me think of a firework display.
A bit of an odd ball shot which I expect to bomb as they say........but we'll see.......don't be nice, if you think it should be trashed, please say so as I shall not be offended ( well, perhaps only a weeeeee bitSadSad).
Due to family visiting, I may not be around that much later today.

My thanks to all who took time to view and comment on Celebrate Those Who Made The Clyde Great.

Some great contrasts in this well done image, the fluffy white makes a good foil for the seeded grasses! NICE!

Actually, I think this works quite nicely. The contrast of light and dark, sharpness and soft background, and light and dark is strong. Good photo.

Comparing these sparklers of nature to fireworks is a good one.
The back lighting is lovely and there are so many images we can do
using simple grasses and seedheads.
I was inspired by LynneJoyce's set recently with some lovely images
and have a few from my holiday.
So get out there and take some more - we all sem to like them.

Well worth keeping. I love the backlighting effect.
My only comment is that it's a little bit fussy; itcould do with one or two of the grasses removing , or recomposing them slightly to make it more balanced.
