Great looking shot dawn, but I think it would look a bit better if the kids were lifted out of the background a bit. They look a little washed out.....

love the idea Smile

Very interesting and creative manipulation but I would make better use of layers and bring your beautiful grand-daughters to the front and fade them out a little less so that they stand out more from the background. Perhaps fading the background a little more woud be good as well, but don't over do either as the faded out look works well with this composition. I'd tone down the orange a little as well.

I'd stay with either stars or butterflies and not both. The star in the centre is a little bold and draws the eye away from the children who really deserve to be the centre of the composition.

I think your vertical balance is slightly off as well I'd have just a touch less above the children creating a more balanced image.

But all in all a beautiful and creative composition with two beautiful children.

This is beautifully done, love the shapes and colours, it's like the children are dreaming of fairies and fantasy worlds. The blending has, however, dulled the childrens' images and, although it gives them a dreamy feel, it tends to merge them into a little obscurity within the image. A fine composition, but I felt a little top heavy, perhaps a crop from the top, or lift the children into the central swirl?

Like the dreamy effect you have created here, maybe if the effect colours were slightly muted it might improve the image, but this is good work to my eye.
