Not sure about the harsh part, although life inside a bubble would suck or maybe we do live inside of a bubble???

I do however, like your photo and processing treatment.

I too think this image is a bit over done. One reason I enter challenges is to see what people see, and to learn.

I think the image has photographic possiblilities, so I disagree with those that do not.

Yes, I was trying to create a dreamy more unnatural world.

Also, how would you like to be in a bubble. Remember the movie "Bubble Boy". Hell, what if you didn't have a parachute?

Clever and all but I don't think it is harsh.

cool effect, I enjoy the processing. I suppose it takes a painter to know if something is photographic. This is photographic. 8

Well this is a cool concept but could stand to be better executed technically, specifically the fact that the girl is out of focus and has such wierd skintones and wierd texture in the face (wich I blame on the post processing, I think the girl is very cute of course). I really like the idea and the distortion on the boy makes it really seem like he´s trapped in there. Maybe some soap reflection on his bubble would perfect the illusion (I mean blue oilish reflection like is on her bubble) 6 from me.

When I judge 'photographs', i generally tend to look at these composites and determine if the image has any photographic merit beyond the editing. I can't see it here.

Way overprocessed!

No doubt about the editing skills but to me it seems the only reason this shot was made was to show off those skills, and that's not what makes a good photograph to me.

Ok, it's not Evey this time and though not really harsh, wow...what a cool photo you've made! I'm sorry I'm not voting...I'd give it a 10! Great use of the expert editing rules - so many people ignored it.
