A good shot Lakey. Its focused very well and sharp.

the colour is a little less white than it should be, and that due to a very slight underexposure. It can hap[pen when shooting a subject with a bright white that you may need to apply a small amount of positive exposure compensation, perhaps a +1/3 for this one.

Ive loaded a mod to show what I mean and also cropped a little from the sides.

Hello, Lakey, nice detail on the dandelion seedhead. I agree with Willie about the darkness of your subject. I think it's a shame that you couldn't get the whole of the head inside your frame, there is some missing at the bottom. However, your background looks good, very subtle.

Hello everyone,

Many thanks for your feedback, as usual! And Willie, and Pamela for your advice - I am wiser by another technique! (^_^) Thanks.

A perfectly good close up image of a Dandelion seed head. Such images move to a new dimension with a bit of dramatic lighting, particularly from the rear quadrant. Sunlight or a flash on an extension lead can make a good image great.
