From the DC GTG while we were at the National Arboreteum. HUGE carp who were jumping all over each other to try and get fish food from the visitors. This little boy was brave enough to stick his finger in there. They don't really bite (no teeth), so not a big risk, but the other kids all thought he was brave. Would have liked more shallow DOF but I didn't have time to change settings when the moment happened.

PP - converted from RAW, levels, increased contrast, added border, resized, sharpened.

Almost an abstract.. and then that 'reality' of a hand hits. Beautifully creative.

Your crop is good and the scene seems bizarre to me.
