lots of fun with this one, special thanks to my teammates for the idea of playing with liquify to make the eyes bigger and all the other input they gave.

ETA: this started out in the lower 6's and just steadily climbed all week.

The image was made from two shots the first had my daughter with the apple and arrow stuck into a long board.

lots of dodging and burning, radial blur, liquify, more burning and i the apple spray was done with a simple scattering of the brush and some masking.

Not voting, but i'd be giving this an 8 or a 9 if i were.
This is definitely a ribbon contender based on what i've seen of the entries, hopefully it nets you the blue!
Can't wait to see this on the front page!
