At the edge of the water by thienbao At the edge of the water by thienbao
Based on a Greek myth.

Photoshop.

Alternate version [link]

**Edit**
Yes, the myth is of Narcissus. I had this image in mind for a long time, but never quite got it down right. I've always loved the version of him and Echo, which I referenced with the shape of the lantern post.

Thanks everyone for all your responses. I loved reading them all.

Beautiful expression of that myth! The emotion with the light and surrounding emptiness is so wonderful.
