Really not an ideal mono subject. The tones, as converted here, are all a bit mid grey giving that low contrast flat effect. It also needs to be needle sharp with more depth of field. You needed much more light or flash and a tripod. Critical focusing and f16.

Tried a mod of the colour version.

Exposure, again.

This time, it may be the light background fooling the caemra into underexposure. Certainly, a stop increase makes it look righter, to my eye.

I've done a colour version - this is what I think I'd like to get, straight from the camera - and a mono conversion.

All the best ,

Technique has been covered. I would just suggest that you have a look at Morpyre's portfolio. Dandelion seed heads are his thing, he does them extremely well...
