Brilliant shot Andy.
25 Apr 2010 1:15PM
This is a good effort to bring the setting sun into play in the composition but it is unsatisfactory in its present position. The image is deeply unbalanced by having the two main elements alongside each other. If the sun were actually behind the dandelion head to create a corona that would be fine but as it is it merely obliterates the fine detail of the head, ruining the fine tracery of the plant.

With the two main elements together over on the right of the frame, the image has no meaningful counterpoint on the left. Indeed, the entire left half of the image is superfluous - it adds nothing.

With the sun still so bright there is little chance of ever being able to balance the dandelion with it until full sunset. Perhaps trying to use, instead, the sun's less burning reflection in the water might have been more successful.
