  • Cool, always needed a Macro lens :)

  • Beautiful! And it’s new to me.

  • Very beautiful. I enjoy the contrasting blue and yellows with this soft white in between.

  • Stunning close-up detail and colours

  • damn. that is nice sir!

  • Blimey. This is a ‘bit good’ eh? A light show indeed.

  • Amazing how you have made this one shine! Beautiful work!

  • Breathtaking! This is just wonderful.

  • Wow. Very pretty!

  • I love what you’ve done with this. I’ve just got a macro lens and I’m finding it fascinating but frustrating.

    Do you mind if I ask if this was natural light or flash?


  • Thanks all.
    Ian Bramham: lighting was from the sun using a light tent in the garden.

  • Andy, this is so good! Different from the usual dandelion photos. Cool!

  • Do you ever sell any of the images that are not at the Eckhart Gallery? I am interested in buying a few. Thanks

  • This is a really lovely shot. The blue background is perfectly judged for showing off the dandelion. A very nice composition too. I like the way you’ve filled most of the frame but still given the subject room to breathe.

  • Peter T: Thanks for your interest, I do sell photos not at the Eckhart Gallery, I’ve sent you an email.

  • I love this shot. Fantastic. It’s dark, yet shines. Beautiful.

  • Nice!

  • really a nice macro-shot! The image is so soft!

  • Wonderful colours :)
