It's a long drive back from NYC, so I didn't have a lot of time and energy to play with this one. By chance, the first filter that came up when I loaded the Filter Gallery was Watercolor. It had a nice effect. It darkened the extraneous background, so the focus is squarely on Aidan and his concentration in blowing out the candles. It also heightened the flames and the wisp of smoke from the one extinguished candle. At the same time, the whole photo is softened a bit. I decided just to go with this one.
