Hi there - I'm curious - the predecessor is closer to the original image? If so, what filters did you use? B/w the two, I like this one better. It has a grittiness and color that is hyper-realistic, which works for macro such as this. I do similar work, but often lack the grit that is reflected here (I like it). So - just trying to figure out how you did it
The first thing that pops to mind when I see this is fairies the second and third would be magical and enchanted. I love the effects that this picture gives. Both natural and simple yet so magical with lots of meaning Great job.
