|Everyday on my morning walks with my dog I see this beautiful dandelions. Over the last days I saw very beautiful pictures of those flowers here on treklens. Here is my try.|
Actually I wanted to try something from a different angle but my dog ran through it an destroyed that beauty before I could take another picture. It's a pity!
- modified contrast and brightness
- framed and resized
I'm not sure about this circle-thing, just a new attempt.
Dandelion (Taraxacum) is a large genus of flowering plants in the family Asteraceae. They are tap-rooted biennial or perennial herbaceous plants, native to temperate areas of the Northern Hemisphere of the Old World.
The flower matures into a globe of fine filaments that are usually distributed by wind, carrying away the seed-containing achenes. This globe (receptacle) is called the "dandelion clock", and blowing it apart is a popular pastime for children. In German it's called a Pusteblume, translated as "blow flower". The number of blows required to completely rid the clock of its seeds is deemed to be the time of day.

Well Gisela, I have to said... I have seen many many Dandelion before, I even took some of their shots, but none of them are as pretty as yours. It look more like an frozen ice-crystal instead of the flowers, yes... pity your dog have "destroyed" it... but I am sure you will see another one soon. :-P Interesting framing, but it is a bit distracting with the gorgeous shot you got here, but that's just me and MO. Well done, thanks for sharing,

I've never seen something like this !!!
The framing is very disturbing, IMHO.
Something much more simple would show much more of the incredible beauty of the photo.

This is so beautiful. I like all these water drops on it creating something that looks almos like frozen. The lighting and colors are excellent with great sharpness. I agree with vlad that the frame is taking a little bit too much attention and hides a little bit the beauty of this superb photo. TFS

What a beautiful shot.
I love every details of this shot.
very well composed too. bravo.
Interesting and very creative even the frame which I am not to sure of either. It is a pity you never got to take another photo or two or three or four.......
Good details and sharpness. I appreciate corona framing and corners composition which point out the dandelion. For TN it hasn't sense but for TL yes. Actually what they are; dew drops or rime?
