First let me state that this is brilliant!!! This is very, very artistic & the detail in this is wonderful and beautiful. The technique used and created has made the end result surprising and pleasing to the eye. I love the image effects to this and the tiny stars all around. The light on her hand and arm is warm and accents it so well. I really could go on and on in paragraphs about this portrait, I just love it that much!!!!
Excellent work!!!

Such a creative and awesome capture. It captures her sense of wonder and definitely brings out the child in all of us. But, adding the fairies is a big bonanza, which makes this even more creative.

I agree with all being said, this creation is definitely a First Place winner!!! Congratulations, Sherry, on a job well done. #9641836

I had this in mind when I snapped the original photo ~ my daughter lit by headlights of a parked vehicle at night...She was chasing bugs (lol!). Then I added several effects and the fairy to create this scene... :)
