I like it, but I think I would have liked it better if it was color. Did it come out funny in color? Great capture...8

Nice winged effect. Clever use of the natural to reflect the ethereal. Wow, that sounds deep. I find it interesting that you used one with a flaw (torn wing on the right). I have a lot of those seeds in my yard as well.

I LOVE this, tho' I'd have titled it something more suitably artistic, like Angel Wings.
