Weekly Photo Challenge: Intricate

Nature’s intricate beauty…
…and Gardener’s nightmare!

Please note – this image was taken using a newly purchased 50mm lens the rational behind which is discussed on my Tales From a Finchley Lad blog.

  1. I also captured some pics of this kind of flower:) why do u make it black-white ? i think it’s more beautiful with colors:)

    • That’s a very interesting question. For me it was a decision that I made before I pressed the shutter button.. The seed head is almost pure white and has so many beautiful textures and patterns to it. In the background there is the grass – a range of shades of green with lots of detail of its own. For me, by removing the colours, I was concentrating my viewers attention on the patterns in the seed head and removing the exterior distractions of the grass behind. That doesn’t mean that my approach is the only valid one. Photography is always about artistict expression – Have a look at Ana’s shots which I think you’ll enjoy 🙂 – https://anvicaphotos.wordpress.com/2015/05/03/weekly-photo-challenge-intricate/ – just make sure you read my comment regards not being able to get in so close 😉 Thanks for passing through and please come by again 🙂

  2. Such a delicate photograph, I really like this!

  3. I don’t think I’ve ever noticed the beautiful patterns in a dandelion before. I think you’re going to put your new camera lens to good use!

    • They are beautiful Debra. I’m debating whether I should have stopped the lens down a bit more on this one as the closest feathers are a bit soft but, in some ways that adds to the dreamy appearance 🙂
