here's a dandelion fluff ball :) I went out in my garden with my 90mm macro and thought I'll try and take at least some kind of photo for the comp. It was nice and still, so here it is. Sliders in Lightroom, crop/composition original. (edit: please view larger in Flickr if you can, on a monitor, it kind of makes it look nicer :) )

Superb shot. I tried a similar one a couple of years ago. I think when I first got my Olympus. Not as fluffy or as good a blur on the background. I’ll drop it in the not valid thread rather than here so you can see what I mean.

How did you get the fluffy effect?

Lovely shot, well balanced subtle light. Definitely looks better on Flickr, much sharper.

Thank you. I guess the fluffy effect is just a combo of this being an exceptionally fluffy dandelion head and the shallow dof+90mm Tamron. I simply love that lens. Background is wholly due to the lens, too. 👍
