Thank you for all the votes / blue ribbon!

Somehow, as soon as I saw the challenge, this this idea popped into my head: A kid (myself) in the woods discovering something that explodes in his face. Was such a fun photoshoot to do one morning before work.

I don't know if anyone told you, but you look a lot like Greyjoy from Game of Thrones here :-). Congrats on the blue!

Ok so now you've won the blue...Congrats! And, spill! Or puff in this case! I'm guessing the big round object in before is like papier mache, and a ton o' baby powder/talc tossed over you for the after?

Also where'd you shoot? Looks like PNW.

OMG, never touch round puffy things growing in the forest! You've now been thoroughly fertilized! Clever and somewhat obscure idea, I like.

Super cool.
Something about the transition between frames bugs me, though - mainly the lower half. I don't know if fading them in somehow or just using a more bold border would have helped. No points off the score for it, though - good concept and kudos on being willing to get messy for a cool shot.
