[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is my son Peter(Pedro) staring behind an aquarium his new blue fish called Marlin.
The aquarium format seems to be his head and the result is his face distorced by the water. He didn't like this pic and I couldn't take another one with better light conditions - he didn't allowed me...
The title is inspired on "Peter and The Wolf" a Prokofiev tale, where Peter discover a magic world through imagination and adventure spirit. As I did with photography !

Additional data:
People from TL found something that I didn't notice at first: Peter's "fisheye" meets the blue fish!

Very interesting composition.
Superb tone & clarity.

Excelent composition. You did well in capturing this humourous image.
Well done

Good! Why don't you like it? Did you trick after? It look natural but look how the eye is distorded... it make the shape of another fish... & we almost have the feeling, the other fish will embrace him.... & the composition is clear!

wow,,it's ...a little awesome i admited when i looked it at the first sight.. but the fantastic effect was interesting with water,if there were no float grass hiding another lovely eye of Peter....

This is so wonderful. It looks like the blue fish is meeting with the other fish (Pedro's eye). Amazing how the shape of the eye transformed into a fish shape. I like the magnified distortion created by the water in the round fish tank. Very imaginative and good work, Alexandre. Shame your son didn't like it. Maybe he will when he is older, then he will appreciate his father's work. In the meantime, I appreciate it very much.

Sorry, out of today's points allowance.

Une parodie de Marty Feldman la tête dans l'eau ... de l'humour aquatique et un joli poisson pour une très chouette photo. Bravo l'imagination!

catching eyes trully on thumbnail. The efect are great, and funny...

Unique, very well seen, made me come back to it and really have a look. Bill

Excellent idea and composition ! Another play with water (lol) ! Nice one !

Good thing I came upon our name, otherwise I would have missed this great shot! Now this is an idea to remember! Peter does not seem to like it however?! There will be a time he will! TFS!

Very imaginative, creative and funny picture. The distortion really makes Pedro's eyes a strange shape. He looks almost like a little alien from outer space hiding behind the fish bowl. It is a good clear shot and well seen.

I love this! Truly creative shot. The effect is amazing...:O)

A little bit stranger this picture!! Through the reflex of glass, the child seems to be sad! This image gets stronger by this... Don´t you think? But even tough, the image is nice... Well done...

incômoda, forte, ótimo enquadramento e muito sugestiva.
