I'm so grateful for all the comments on the previous two images in this series.
V2 here is my original - taken of Samuel at the Nature Centre - walking along touching a glass barrier to the monkey enclosure.

In my mind I could imagine another person beyond the glass reaching out to him - from another world, which is why I added texture to the left side indicating that the hand is reaching through a barrier

Take care in the snow
Helen

The original is a delightful picture of childhood discovery. I like what you've done in V1, adding some magic, but I'll happily stay with V2.
