I like this composition very much. It reminds me of being young again, when I took the time to notice things that I ignore a lot now. Life was less complicated back then. However, it wasn't until recently that I started to appreciate the intricacies of nature. I'm in awe of all the stuctures within structures. I think chemistry helped a little too, because it takes it even further.
I'm glad you desaturated it because it looks very nice that way. From a quick glance, it's strange how unnatural it appears, but that slowly washes away. I can only marvel at it now. The details are very impressive and the contrast is just right. Good work!
the composition is lovely and the black and white definately makes the most of your photograph. you've captured the fragile, delicate feel of the dandelion really well and i like the little water-droplets too x
