Funny idea and very creative. What you should have done was make the head sloop some like a dead dandelion ya know. Anyway very nice shot. Next time add the shadows for the heads.

Took me a second on the belt- Nice touch! My only suggestion- To make the heads look more real (hehe) I would have left on those little petals that are right before the flower, it would have helped the transition (IMO).

Awesome !

Very creative & well thought out & presented, The heads are just too disterbing for me. Particualy the strangled one. That being said it does deserve a high mark so, a 7 from me.
