    Damn - too late to vote. The not-so-obvious thing that makes this a #1 shot is the warmth in the background. Especially the path/water in the bottom of the frame.

    I agree with Bill Rosenthal. It looks almost too perfect. Hopefully you will let us in on the trick if there was one.

    Beautifully taken - the detail is wonderful. The blurred background really focuses the eye to the dandelion.

    Old Finn: Common Dandelion is native to Eurasia, and now is naturalized throughout North America, southern Africa, South America, New Zealand, Australia, and India. It occurs in all 50 states of the USA. most Canadian provinces and Old Finland ;-)

    Very nice, good sharpness. In my favorites. Is that flower from Hungary?

    Okay, I give up. How did you get those flying seeds to do that? It is almost too perfect. I wish that the bright sky was not there, but I can see you probably had no choice in that. This is one of my favorites for sure.

    So someone might say there are blown highlights top right. Yep they are right but here it is actually OK because it helps draw our eyes up and right and we get to see the seeds flying off. A very very nice shot. Have yet to see a few but my favourite show of all seen thus far across both categories.

    Wonderfully rendered. This could be Franz or any one of a number of good photogs! I think of Franz only because of the cleaness and simplicity of the shot, the perfect exposure, nicely muted background, and fine fine definition. Technically, you could not do better than this and you have an almost magical but completely normal and natural moment captured here. A really fine shot!
