If this shot doesn't get a ribbon I will be very surprised. Like the glimmer in the eye and the detail of the mouth and water droplet.

this looks a little on the soft side to me. The border is a little to thick and may take away from the shot.

good effort
Edit to comment above, after a 2nd look on my imac this pic is quite sharp. marking up
