Default Different prospective of a Dandilion

The first two are just interesting, but I really like the 3rd shot.

Except for the vignetting, I like the 2nd one.

Thanks for the comments. I actually LIKED the vignetting of the second shot and thought about adding more with Photoshop. Maybe it is just me. I have a video background and lately have been adding vignetting to my work if I am looking for a softer image.

Thanks again for the comments. I often do not have time to post any pictures and it is nice to know what others think.

Nothing wrong if that's the effect you were trying to achieve! And as they say "different strokes for different folks". Wouldn't it be boring if everyone like the same things?

vignetting is the black at the edges....i'm thinking from an add-on lens he was using zoomed out all the way....

Yes, for the first two shots, I used an old Nikon 50mm lens, inversed on the front of my Sony 717. With the second shot, I tried to increase my depth of field by closing down the f stop a bit, and then it was able to pick up the dark edges. With the 3rd shot, I just used macro.
