When I read the challenge title I thought I had to submit something since I am a sci-fi lover. Several days without an idea and then suddenly one came to my mind: I have a degree in English literature and I wrote my graduation paper on a book written by Sir Arthur C. Clarke - Childhood's End.

The meaning of the elements on the scene is that the young boy, my son Andrea, is leaving behind his childhood (the bear) and follow his new path.

This Is sensational Alex?? Such a beautiful dreamy look, the clouds the clouds, astonishing!
Just a few nitpicks though, I wish he was holding the teddy bear and that the bear was a little bit smaller. Apart from that it's very good, and my top pick.
