Just the right light/glow

I was hoping someone here could help me out. I am working on a render, it's in a cave with water. I would like to have the water glow kind of like in this picture. I'm not sure what is the best way to do this though. Any advice would be most appreciated.

I should also note that I am still using Daz 2.3 at the moment.

Thank you in advance.

    Sometimes the solution is so simple that you don't even consider them. I didn't put the spot lights under the water but right above the water and boosted intensity and spread and then added anther spot light under the water showing upwards to get a glow on the character's face. This is what I got so far. Though it is far from done yet. Thank you for your help.
