I wanted the dandelions, in their white puffy stage, to look like more than "just a weed". This abstract image was created by combining multiple exposures, so that the flowers and grasses would look like a stage full of dancers swaying and dipping in rhythm to their music.
I took several images that day to get a look that I liked. I rarely take just one image—often my better creative ideas come after I've clicked the shutter many times. The original colors were quite bland (a blah green, light tan, and of course white), so enhancing the colors was a definite improvement. Multiple exposures are fun to do, often surprising you, sometimes disappointing. The beauty of digital allows me to take several, five, ten, twenty. It's a great way to experiment, especially when you think you have nothing in front of you to photograph.
Because it's kind of funky, I do like having this in my online shop. And if you have any questions about this image, or any other, just let me know!
