A Small World of Dandelions

By CanonPhotoNinja
Taken out on a mountain top. A cluster of dandelions grew alone. Had a marble in my pocket, and decided to experiment. Took almost an hour of messing with settings and timing with well over 100 tries. Freehand dropped into frame (*you can see my hand in the refraction above it*). Hope the slight lack of focus in the glass marble isn't to much to distract . Either way, I like it.

Given that you freehand dropped the marble into the frame, I think you did well to get anything, let alone sharpness!! Grin Good timing on this one. I rather like the softness of this image anyway, it's produced an intriguing image and I like the way the circular marble echoes the circles of the dandelion heads in the background.

Thanks. Appreciate the input and perspective. Plan on having more fun with this in the future.
