Hi Neal: A good nature story telling image, you portray well just how the Milkweed fluff and seed pods look out in nature. Good sharpness on the fluff and seeds; you have moved in close so you have held any background distractions to a bare minimum.
The soft lighting was just right to capture the mood of this subject, and your very thin light gold border added that final touch.   Posted: 09/06/2021 22:21:16

Hello Neal: I like everything about this image, color/soft green with the white fluff about it and the dark seeds mixed in. I also like the clarity of the entire picture. The lighting is superb with some highlights. To me, it's perfect and I will return to view it again several times.   Posted: 09/07/2021 13:54:34

Hi Neal,
Very interesting subject. It emits a surreal quality. The details of the the weeds and seeds are tack sharp. The green background is perfect. No improvements needed. Nicely done.   Posted: 09/11/2021 11:09:43
