I thought about this a little and had already got the image i wanted in my mind. I taped the seed head to an old whiskey tube ~hic :)

I then plucked a seed from another plant and dropped it past the seed head until i shot it in the place i wanted. Very little PP apart from saturation, sharpnes and curves to taste.

The result i wanted was to make it appear to have been pucked by the wind. Using the wish analogy, for me worked. Im sure plenty of these have scattered the board recently but i hope it appeals to some. I used a turned off Mac computer screen as the Black BG.

Although free study and probably seen it a thousand times before but sometimes a wish is an only hope.......Will this wish come true.....I doubt it but i hope you like it, that would be enough for me.

neat composition - would have liked the lone seed in better focus - but we can't have everything? or can we?

I just really like this. Like the baby is leaving the nest and the parent is sadly watching him fly away. I love the perfect black background. THe hint of yellow in the dandelion works well. Great use of neg. space as well. You nailed the rule of thirds too. Good luck. 7
