light water reflections

a big wow!

Stunning!

Great blue and the water effect. I feel like I'm in the water, too, looking into its movement and bubbles. The person's shape looks wonderful as well. His hair looks a bit weird from my screen. .. maybe softening the edges!?

very nice but I find the placement of the fin directly over the head is distracting.

Kevin this is your best yet!!! As already mentioned above...soften the hair and do away with fin thing above head.....it's great!:D

That's a brave parakeet, sitting on the guy's head, even under water. Most birds can't be trained to do stuff like that :D

Seriously, very nice piece, but that "bird" isn't working (I know, it's really a fin, but it needs adjustment to read as what it is).

Same comments as most about the fin, etc... and I'm not sure the shadow under the boy is necessary or if it seems correct in its angle, but maybe that's just me.

Great mood, composition, subject. I feel some childhood exuberance emanating from this one. Did I spell that right?

Thanks for all the nice comments. I'll take a look at that fin.
