Well, I thought they made a nice pair…. Wink

I was having a tough time on this, the last dawn shoot of the trip. The sun was supposed to light up Pyramid Mountain (a bit of which is sort of visible in the reflection) but a bank of cloud got in the way. I looked around for something else to shoot and found this little dandelion covered in dew. "Aha!", thought I….

Layers of softness, of various sorts.
I love this to bits. I'm also trying scrolling up to crop off the top a little bit above the white diagonal, which gives a different, simpler picture. But I suspect that you don't believe in cropping.
beautiful looks so soft. christineGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Like your composition here Julian. The Mountains out of focus reflection gives a lovely balance to the sharp detail of the Dandelion head.

Really like this image - different and effective.

A wonderful Aha moment, looks quite amazing considering the camera and it's limitations. Plus the loss of detail in converting for the web.
