It almost looks like calligraphy on rice paper.. Amazing idea for a composition. The shadows cast are a great trick. Maybe the only regret would be that the dandelion like flowers aren't more clear (more white, more focused.. not sure), as it makes the image more fuzzy.
i like these tiny spots of colour in here and the variety of shapes in contrast to the muddy brown around it all. which has - as others have said before me - really great texture. good one! oh, havafav!
The textures here are fantastic - if this were a stock piece I think it would certainly inspire many a traditional painter who specialized in abstractions. The view that you took this shot from really adds to the intensity of the abstractness to it, and overall creates quite a great effect. Good work, Shawn!
