My initial impression (and this is just my opinion) is that it is a nice abstract. Not really liking the vignetting. My eye is drawn right to the OOF center of the dandelion, which is too centered in the frame for me. It is partially cut off on the bottom also.

Lou, I like shot but the shallow depth of field leaves me wanting more in focus. Did you try shooting with an aperture of f/11 or f/16 to see if more depth of field looked better? I think stacking would add a lot to this photo.
Thanks for sharing.

Exactly what I was thinking. f5.6 will get a very thin dof.....:wink:

Thanks for the replies.
I actually used a opteka fisheye/macro and just aimed it at the dandelion.
Not real sure how to use this type of combo yet.
Thanks Lou
