Something about this picture is so alluring, but I can’t pinpoint exactly what it is. Maybe it’s the wispy-ness (is that even a word?), the delicate white stands blurring into the darkness, or the fact that each seed is held together so loosely that I wanna blow on it to watch them all drift away in the wind. Whatever it is, it really draws you into the picture, makes you look at things we normally take for granted. So simple, yet so complex. Thanks for the moment of reflection.

I think Wispy-ness is a word. I can see wispyness in the picture. I love the perspective of this one

I love this photo too. It has a magical etheral quality to it.
When I was a child we used to think these dandlylion seeds were fairies. We used to capture them gently in our hands and then make a wish before letting them float away.

this really does have a magical quality to it. I see Disney taking this image and zooming so that we could see fairies dancing in the lights. A whole new series could be developed 😉

I immediately thought magical too. Such a beautiful image. You used your DOF so wonderfully here to give it that wispy-ness Lynne described. You have such a great eye for these things and talent to technically pull off the effect you want. You make it look SO much easier than it really is 🙂

Amazing!! It’s one of those pics you can sit and stare at. I agree with Amy, you make it look so easy!
