Striking contrast between the stone and child asleep. Lighting like this can be tough to manage. But this one operates to vignette the blue clad figure wonderfully. There's an ancient v the new vibe here that works as well.

light hitting the child's face is perfect, the light seems to wrap around the subject and fall off in background, giving it separation between background and subject. Serene moment captured well.

Serenity - so little is needed....
This image most matches the theme "Serenity"
Mulberrybean said "Captivatingly serene" - yes! - in purest form thought and the art of photography.
Excellent light, very good composition.

The stone is both soft and hard. The child is trusting.
