    Hey guys,
    Saw a dandelion and grabbed a shot. I was just looking for some comments and constructive criticism on this photo. Any input is appreciated! Thanks in advance,

    the colors really pop in this image! maybe you should think about cropping out the foreground a little? its a little too distracting IMO
    otherwise, great shot!

    Give some definition to the front grass for perspective. Don't fuzz it out so much and then crop. Cool shot.

    The DOF was done in camera with a 300mm focal length, so I can't add any definition, but I can crop it. Thanks for all the comments, guys!

    I actually blew the highlights on purpose. I thought the pure white worked in this case, and was a nice contrast from the green background. Thanks again for all the feedback guys :thumbup:

    The DOF is not post production though, which is one of the reasons I liked this image so much.
