Hold On to Spring by FramedByNature Hold On to Spring by FramedByNature
Canon PowerShot SD1000

Oh man spring is here! And so are all those dandelion shots you've been seeing on dA lately =D I'm sure you're sick of them, but I figured I'd have a go at it anyway. Not too bad for my second attempt I'd say :)
I used the "left hand brace" technique, in which you hold the subject in your left hand, holding the camera with your right hand and bracing it on your left wrist. This essentially "bonds" the subject and the camera to the same plane, which reduces blur caused by camera shake. I used digital macro mode, white balance set to cloud, and dropped the exposure by about 1/3 step to prevent loss of detail on the bright dandelion head.

Please tell me what you think! :dance:
