So ethereally beautiful - rather "other worldly". I love what you've done, this is digital at it's very best! So glad you took part in our challenge.

Darkly intriguing piece, really like how the natural ethereal delicacy of the puff-a-weed /Dandelion seed contrasts against the strange erect starkness of those definitely different other-world beings!
Like the darkened polaroid emulsion pull effect you've used on your edges in this , and your other fine work above..
Poetic pieces!
Regards,
Chris/WildGoose
