Interesting image. A few things in it bother me a bit though...

The blue tonality in the water just doesn't work with the models skin tones. Also, on my monitors (30" macs (2) calibrated) the skin tones are way too yellow on her bottom half. I would also bring up the skin tones in the water. As it is now her reflection in the water is grey, would be neat if you had some true skin tonality in that reflection so it looks as though the waters a mirror.

I also think the water on the back side of the model isn't helping the image much either. Burn it out and add some black space to the left of the frame. It would balance the shot out a bit more and give it an more even flow and a sense of 'the water is about to hit' feel to it..

Pretty cool idea as a whole though. I've done a bit of high speed stuff and always love the results from it. I gotta ask though... what did you need 5 camera's for? Did you do multiple shots and stitch them together?
What do you think?

i love your water pics, i am not a photographer but i greatly appreciate what they can do, it's amazing that you can capture the image so pure in that split second, the water in all it's stages and the connection with the girl. and being a guy i have to comment on her too, she is pretty damn fine. nice work though over all, i really like what you do

I'm poor, so I don't have premium to do a critique.
I'll put it here instead. This is a beautiful piece, and I love the concept and the way you did it. However, the lower half, and some of the face is very orange. At first I thought it might be my computer, but I saw other users mention this.
I don't know if that's the model's skin, or problems with image editing, either way it takes away from the effectiveness and beauty.

but seriously, to get 5 shots from 5 angles at the same time, so at least one of them might come out cool looking.

I love the way the impact of the water hits her body. Contrary to the other comments that don't like the excess water droplets i love them. i feel that they are like an embrace of the water behind her. very passionate shot in my opinion.

On a "calibrated" 21" trinitron her skin tone doesn't look excessively yellow any more than a normal human would. What it looks like is she's actually leaning towards the flash and that whites out her skin on her upper torso and on her lower torso, which is further away from the flash, isn't getting that.

Which just goes to show you that even an IPS panel still isn't as trustworthy as a CRT, and both are trumped by common sense.

Which is of course not remotely common, in fact it's so UNcommon that it's batman's superpower.

Okay well, first off I like it. I love the content of it and I would say it's really well done. Even more interesting would b to hear how you managed to do it.

Though, I would say that Davenit does have a small point about her bottom half. Because of the coloring it looks like a really untanned woman stole the bottom half of a tan person. I'm not sure wat really caused that cause im not a photographer and even if I was wouldn't be near the quality you regularly produce. Overall, I don't think it's that big of an issue anyways because it really doesnt detract from the photo and if anything makes it all th more interesting.

Congrats and good job!
