Love the concept of the shot,

Personally I would have cropped some of the stem off of the bottom of the shot to lower the main subject onto the lower line of thirds.

The idea is fine but you needed a lot less exposure. At least two stops, possibly more. You needed the seed head silhouetted against the bright, but not over bright, sun.
