Perhaps my favorite of all your models, and this photograph keeps him on my favorite's list! This is beautiful, the arch in his body with the hands just touching the water, as if he's using the water for balance. The body is lit perfectly with his flexed muscles standing out in bold relief! It's awesome! I hope you continue to work with him.
Wow, really impressive, love how styalized this is. The one cloud on top, the forrest in the background and the model in the water with the reflection and movement of the water. Simply a stunning shot!
I'm sorry, I can't help my self. Because your picture is so beautiful and always inspired me, again, I did it again TT^TT I turned him into merman. Please don't angry with me ..here : seawaterwitch.deviantart.com/a…
I kind of wish he wasn't so smack dab in the center. Even if he was just slightly to the left a little bit more I feel like this would have been a stronger picture. The vast emptiness of the water echos the emptiness of the sky. With that cloud in the sky it would have been a little better balanced if he would have been just a little more off kilter with the middle. It would have balanced the brights in the picture as well. There is a strong highlight on the largest part of the cloud along with the highlights in your model. To me they are just too close to get that perfect balance.
The model's pose does somewhat reflect the cloud though so I do feel that aspect of your photo is successful, along with the very top edge and the very bottom. Not the same colors but they are close in saturation. It helps balance the weight of the work for me.
I think this is one of your best shots, really! I love everything about it.. the location, the reflection on the water surface, the pose and expression of your model.. great work! You definitely know where to search for beauty
