MAKE A WISH

HERE IS MY WISH My children call these, Wishy Sticks! (to the rest of us they're the common Dandelion seed heads.) With one giant exhale they bid them farewell as they send their countless seeds into the breeze. Each seed, with its own parachute, begins its own journey blessed with one extraordinary wish.

Taken up close with my Canon 100mm macro lens at f2.8. Softlyy backlite with natural light from the kitchen window. It was  raining pretty hard so I grabbed a handful and darted indoors to photograph them! A lot easier then trying to lie down on the soggy ground.  Then I processed them with Melody from my, Beyond the Lens Photoshop Actions, to keep them really soft and tonal.
