I really like the color and compsition of this picture. The sheen of water is super cool.

I like the pose and the color of the water. His skin looks a little plastic to me, though.

something disturbing about the foreshortened face and roughage on the neck. and the way the water makes him look plastic. but I like to be disturbed. 8

the glowing effect sort of makes the kid look unreal.

Wonderful processing job on this. Has an oldtime feel to it. Looks like the noise reduction was a little strong, but hard to tell with water. So, if I can't really tell for sure...good job! ;^) The background on this works great. Good luck in the challenge.

nice shot, though it looks like it needs a slight rotation. one part of me says, "oh, what a joyous moment." the other part of me says, "ahhg, does he know how many ducks crap in that water?" lovely colors, great idea, good luck!

One of my tens ... very emblematic of summer. Makes a good (and this is in a good way) stock photo, greeting card, etc.

I love that. It's like he's bathed in a silvery light. This is terrific.
