I wanted to make a dream like photo, where light and the lightness of it, capture a moment in time. A certain amount of post-processing time was used to achieve this. I hope someone likes it.

I really like the "painterly" feel of this, it's perfect for the scene. This would be a great greeting card. The composition, the light, the softness, the whole overall mood of this is just lovely.

Interesting composition, but seems a little over processed IMO

In general, using the rule of thirds to compose the focal point results in a more pleasing shot and I think it would have helped here. Unfortunately, the outfits are getting lost in the background which is giving this shot a touch of "floating head" syndrome. You've captured mood beautifully, though.

This is all about the light AND your artistic eye has captured a moment and a story. One of my ribbon picks. BOL

This has an almost etched quality that I find appealing, but yet... good luck

my first reaction was to just click through this photo giving it a 4 or 5, because of its processed feel, but on second glance i love the mood that it creates, more of a 2-dimensional canvas of shapes, textures, and colors. the title perfectly fits the mood this photo creates. 10

Not sure it meets the challenge and looks way over processed.
