its been a lovely day of sunshine almost summer like so I tried to capture the mood with these dandilion heads held up to the sky. made a sky frame and semi cloned the heads onto it at 50% thus making my own composition.
copyright is mine as I will probably make some cards out of it.

Hi Sue, I do like and enjoy creativity. This is very well done imo. A well put together presentation. The nice soft blue tone is very complimentary to the dandilion and not over bearing. Nicely done, thanks.

Beautifully creative and artistic image, full of freshness and freedom...haven't seen anything better from Hallmark!

Hi Sue:
Most excellent for its details and angle to set it up against clear blue sky. Not sure about the borders, I think there is too much of room there. But still it has my attention:)

But I can feel my allergies acting up just by looking at it!

Well done.

Hi Sue,
superply composed close up with a wonderful frame work. Colors, sharpness and POV are excellent.
A gorgeous presentation.

Hi Sue,
beautiful shot! I like these flowers very much. Good POV and compo.

Regards Lencik

Lovely work!

Which software did you use for framing the picture like this ???



I think your work is beautiful.
This one will definitely make a very good card (and quite frankly, others among your collection here).

BTW Have you considered setting up a website of your own?
I think your work deserves it.

I don't think anyone can compete with you in flower photography or beautiful, imaginative framing.
This one is particularly wonderful.

Hi Sue,

Excellent shot and framing too. TFS


very nice frame Sue, i like a lot the blue and your composition is realy charming.

Hi Sue,
Nice shot, lovely frame. I like the POV and the contrast between the blue background and the beautiful foreground. The frame suggest movement, well done, Ricardo.

Hi Sue,
You are fast becoming my favourite 'favourite'. I think the composition is great, a crystal sharp central dandelion, the others being cropped by the inside and outside frames - very simple and more effective for it. Lovely gentle warm tones - wow! Well done you.
Regards Marko.
