    _MG_5538 AV.jpg took this while out for a walk with my dog. Wish I had a £ for every wish I have made with these over the years

    This is a lovely shot, rich greens and perfect focus, but I'm sorry to say it doesn't scream "backlit" to me.

    Thank you for your comments perhaps I have misinterpeted the theme I thought as the sun light was lighting the dandelion from the left and back of frame that the subject was lit from behind and the left happy to withdraw if not meeting the theme

    Not backlit for me either but no need to withdraw - nice shot and welcome to the Compo Crew - the dark vignette is a bit too heavy for me though :)

    Thanks for your comments been kicking about avforums for many years and thought I would get involved a little on the photography side :) If this shot does not meet the theme can it be deleted and have the chance to upload another in this months or do I need to wait until next month.

    The blade of grass behind the dandelion clock surely looks backlit :) But the main article itself doesn't, I'm sorry to say :) Despite of that, it's a lovely shot. I like the deep greens a lot.

    Unfortunately (sometimes) it's only the one shot. And once you've entered it, that's it then :) But there's always the next month! Oh, and welcome to the competition crew, nice to have new faces join in :)
