[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Good Morning All,

This is a typical spring shot from blooming dandelion flowers in their youth stage. I went for a low POV in order to get the 'natural glow' their tender and soft petals were gently being kissed by sun-rays at that moment. In addition, I wanted to capture the beautiful bokeh.

It is a late morning shot and on that day, it was sunny and (sun)light was just wonderful to expose these beauties nicely. In order to appreciate their beauty in a larger version I have posted this work in a panorama format as "LP". Therefore, you can either click on "LP" or directly click on the image itself to get the view in a larger version.

Wishing you all a good day!

Best regards,

Hi Paras,
Another fine floral presentation in this panoramic frame. A splendid bokeh BG to compliment these yellow flowers. The classical contrast of Nature! Beautiful side lighting and such a neat presentation.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Paras, this is a really beautiful panoramic, low POV photo. Very well done. The leading flower is crystal clear - the petals, green leaves under the flower, and the stem all so sharp. And as you said, the bokeh is also very lovely.

Hi Paras,

I like the juxtaposing of the opened flowers at right againts the unopened buds at left. Th wide angled panoramic crop works well here. Wonderful use of a shallow dof to isolate the yellow flowers from their bg. Tfs!

HI Paras, dieses Panorama Format hast Du bestens für diese herrliche Löwenzahnaufnahme gewählt. Die Blumen kommen somit voll zur Geltung, sehr guter Schärfeverlauf, bestens gelungen.
Liebe Grüße
(Übermorgen gibt es eine Überraschung für Dich:-)))

Sharpness is excellent even on the large version. The brokeh is lovely and the composition very nice and well balanced. An unusual view of the dandylion but it does shot how its petals expand to gather the sunlight. Nice job
