    Unfortunately, I have a couple for these in my yard and decided to take a shot of one.

    Cool, you have glow-in-the-dark dandelions! I have never seen them before. How do you switch them on?

    Was this done in Photoshop, or did you used a snooted flash to illuminate only the dandelion?

    Thanks for the replies, glad you like it! :thumbup:

    You turn them on by letting them know that you love them and that you have been too lazy to go to the store to get poison. ;)

    D90 with kit 18-105
    105mm
    f 5.6
    1/60 sec
    ISO 100
    0.6m from subject
    on a tripod with the cameras timer to trigger shutter
    manual focus
    no flash
    harsh light (for strong lines)
    Polarizing filter
    proper exposure
    proper WB (WhiBal then saved and opened again to change WB in PS)
    RAW

    Changed WB to tungsten and under exposed 4 stops in PS, causing the Dandelion to fluoresce but still have good detail in the "shadows".
