i am not sure i like the placement of the wand.. nor do i care for the symmetrical distribution of the "stars".. but i do like the overall effect with the water and the lighting..

The placement of the wand was natural. She was brushing it on her cheek because it was so soft. I tried other shots where this was not the case but they did not seem natural, which they were not since I forced them there.

The stars were put in to put her somewhere but it ended up looking like she was sitting on air in the sky. That didnt work so I used the water for an anchor.

I'm going to try no stars or perhaps less and differerent shape.

Anybody know a good method for making better stars?

Now that you have said that I will have complete overcast , since I don't have any night shots in my collection at this time. Here it is without the stars and what I printed.
