Went with my granddaughter to the sea and we tried to get a face that was afraid of the sea but most of them have big smiles. This one though might work;-)

Nice exposure and colours. i don't get the feeling of thalassophobia though. And i hope you won't expose your young model to such risks for future challenges.

Good photo...I think the model needs to show more fear in her facial expression to make the pic more dramatic.

I think the right word here is eluding me, but it may be "to candid" i think. The challenge is phobia, and I just don't get that feeling out of it. It was still very nicely executed.

Well no wonder..... looks like she has good reason to fear it at present.
A phobia is actually an irrational fear, not a perfectly reasonable concern (and someone with a phobia would NOT put themselves in such a precarious postion).
However, I appreciate you making the effort to depict fear.

She needs to look more scared - she is almost grinning. But what a trooper! Good photo on technical merits also.
