Since I don't know if only the post with the tag is enough... I'll leave my entry to the contest here too:


B&W Photo Contest - Minimalism Entry #3 - Dandelion

Just browsed my archives for the 3rd entry to the contest and went back to the August, 2013 and stumbled at some nice minimal dandelion macro shot.
Black and white conversion and white frame makes the trick. Looks much more better :)

Enjoy the scenery :)
