So many ways I'd like to have processed this, but sticking with the rules this is what I ended up with. Still like it. It's out there and could bomb terribly, but this is one of those "artsy / fartsy" photos I throw out once in a while. :-)

I have always loved the way light shines through water.. It always adds a sense of fantasy to a photograph.

Needs more light on face and too many white "spots" in water are distracting (you can spot these out in photoshop). Good composition with subject not dead centered as so many photos I've seen. Interesting idea for photo.

Beautiful use of light/defocus. Also looks like it could be a picture in a fairy tale with the stars commign down around the child.
