Kitsnaps: Dandelion  

To make up for yesterday’s snapshot, today we have Art. :)

I took this for a photography class. The actual purpose of the assignment was working on depth of field, and the original of the photo turned out splendidly. But I was screwing around with it in Photoshop and accidentally (effortlessly) blacked out the background. I thought. “Woo! Art!” and kept a copy like that. It gets more awesome the larger it’s displayed at, because the detail is very sharp and clean. But I shall refrain from posting a giant-sized version. 800px is probably enough. :)

A 2048x2048 crop of the flower itself would be a nifty iPad wallpaper.

Effortlessly blacked out the background? Wow. I am in awe. Could you repeat the experiment if you had to?

On this photograph, yes. It was the lighting and the focus that made it possible. In general, not so much. :)

Haha. I was wondering how you were able to so perfectly put the dandelion on a black background like that. XD

That is *gorgeous*!!

Any chance you might be willing to post a high rez version so some of us could use it as desktop background for personal use?

(my rez is 2560x1440) :)
