I like this. Especially, I like the tags you used to describe the scene... "network". Another reason I like this image, is I took a similar picture. The same type of seed pod, just different exposure. Outstanding image, well done, thank you for posting.

A remarkable, dreamy composition. I love detail, shallow depth-of-field, and the muted colors.

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this picture high up on a beautiful vineyard in bavaria.
Time
It was a tuesday noon and I tried to make some good captures with my new Nikon D610. I saw beautiful plants and flowers and then after some minutes walking I've found this one. I finally made some closeup macro captures of this beauty.
Lighting
Just natural light was used for this picture.
Equipment
It was my new Nikon D610 and one of my first pictures with it ever. The used lense is called Nikon AF-S Micro-Nikkor 105mm 1:2,8G VR Lense.
Inspiration
The beauty of this flower inspired me to make a really nice looking closeup. The form and the state of softness let me took the name NETWORK for this.
Editing
Yes I did it with Lightroom: First I've cropped the image for a nice looking cutout. Then I did some light corrections (lightened the image) and added some radial blurs with lightning corrections. After this I did some beauty retouching and removed disturbing elements like dust and such stuff. The last step was adding some violet toning on it and after this I've finished the post-processing with adding a soft black vignette.
In my camera bag
Today I am using my Sony Alpha 7 with Carl-Zeiss 50 mm, my Nikon D5100 with telezoom and finally my Huawei Y300 Smartphone. I always use given and naturally light - I never use the flahslight.
Feedback
Just keep your OWN creativitiy and dare make different shots! Then you will have lots of fun and receive nice feedback. :-)
