I personally love this, but I know it's a matter of taste as there are many similar photographs out there. I think the fact that the face is not the focal point of this photograph is what makes it intriguing, draws the viewer in. Instead we are drawn to the hand, and the fragility of the torso, and consequently the fragility of the branch and therefore nature itself. Only on second glace do we notice the face and the black eyes which seem to tell a story. The dots of flowers may be snow at first glance, because the eye is preoccupied with the rawness of the body. Great work! Going straight into my favourites!

I always love it when a photography's able to capture a legend, and here you seem to have found Peter Pan, and this guy's definitely in Neverland. Peter's always been close to nature, and this boy's spirit seems to be so close to all of us that looking at him sometimes feels like watching a mirror image - at least when we're dreaming about our world, how it could be, how it should be to feel better in it. Maybe this is a world for boys and girls to become one, and so your character strikes a pose that's beyond the typical image of a boy or a girl. It's deeply human, and we've forgotten about that. Thanks for reminding us of Kensington Gardens.
