I couldn't choose between the two examples so I'm using both. I loved how the half eyes of the feather looked like half moons so I choose the size I liked for the feather moon and placed it in between. I then added flood. I also added a small shadow under the feather moon. I was surprised to see the feather moon was not reflected in flood. I added two hands (had to flip one) drop shadow on one, inner shadow on the other, using liquify I lightly twisted and pulled the water to look as if the hands were creating some motion. I also burned around the water where the hands came out. Lastly, I added slight radial blur to the feather moon.
