The focal point used in Wind Ready allows you to peer down inside the subject’s head of seeds.  Though these are a different type of seed, they share similarities with my Rainbow Seeds piece and display a reduced, but still visible, prism-like effect.  I like how the seed hairs shoot out like star bursts and they remind me of sparkles from fireworks.  Those small hairs have tiny, thinner and shorter hairs coming off from them that can be perceived as individual strands since a high level of detail was captured.

By focusing near the center of the subject in Eversion, I was able to create an abstract composition that allows what is normally hidden beneath its fluffy hairs to be seen; effectively turning it inside out.  The outwardly radiating feeling is enhanced by, and gains an edgy attitude from, the ribs in and barbs along the seed blades.  The high level of detail allows surface texture, contours, and individual teeth-like spikes to be seen.
