Hmmmmm, not sure about this one Steve.
Picked out sharp against the background which seems at odds to the tittle, maybe if it had been a bit blurred and the clump bottom left corner is a tad distracting too.
See what others think though.

Sorry, Steve, I'm afraid it does nothing for me. It's one of those shots that looks better seen for real, I think. Did you consider a portrait orientation? For me, that would have helped, I think, as it would give a better balance and emphasise the height the seed head.

Could not make up my mind about this one Steve, but just read Alans suggestion about making it portrait format.
I think that may be better, as more emphasis may be put on the main subject.
Well done on the sharpness as the wind can play havoc with this type of shot.

Mmm, I have to go along with George's feeling for this shot Steve. If the background had been in focus with some motion blur in the grass it would have worked better imho but well done for trying something different.
