    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Over this I much agree with anua. Wonderful colour. So warm. To know that this is "nothing but" a dandelion... such a little, insignificant flower. You really give it power with this photo. They deserve it!!! (Do I have to explain that I like dandelions a lot?)

    I might like to see some more DOF. I think something about the out of focus in the foreground bothers me. Nice shot though the above posters are spot on with the colors.

    real nice. i agree with SLO that maybe a slight adjustment to bring theforeground into focus a little more, but I'm talking a difference of 1-3 millimeters only.

    The photo is really great but is here to be criticized anyway :mrgreen:

    I think that just more DOF is not the point, just put the inner circle in focus and let the background more difuse will call the attention to the center of the flower.

    Now you have just part of the inner circle in focus, and it seems that something is missing, while you have a second "in focus" segment on the top, and this is distracting.

    The setup was 300D, Sigma 50mm Macro and two Kenko extension tubes, Av @f/2.8. Taken hand held.

    Yes, it is quite difficult find the focus in macro, hand held.
