Dandy macro

By ColleenA
Good morning.....
A huge thank you to Carol (caziwinkles) for her UA , much appreciated....
Today....a macro of a dandelion I captured in Nottingham castle in July, made two different crops, not sure which I prefer so am uploading both. I liked that it looked like tiny spider webs. (Hand held)
I will try and catch up later today as i am off for a 2 day macro photography course, looking so forward to learning more about photography....
have a nice dayGrinGrinGrin

Both excellent Colleen but I just prefer the composition of V1. Don't pay too much attention on that course; you're doing very well as it is.

What a great idea for a macro and so well shot, Colleen.

At first I preferred V2...but V1 grabs me more now. I like the nice cosy intimate crop.

Enjoy the course! Sounds like a good one Smile
