Just amazing! Like liquid gold.

I'm on a mad adventure through your amazing portfolio. Hope you don't think I'm a stalker.

Wow, this is unique and very beautiful! Not sure why but it kind of reminds me of a classic painting.

Wonderful lighting and tone to this. It looks like it could be on the cover of a book. Very artsy.

my new favorite from this challenge. still the best after voting. great point of view, and i really like the dream like quality. at least for me, this is the kind of stuff i see when i read. i rarely get literal reproduction of real life. this is why reading can be so much more intense than movies.

Neat lighting effects, but the composition is a bit messy and the subjects indistinct.

If I could have seen the top models head and if her right leg wasn't so overexposed this would have been so much better for me. Great take on the Tile and I love the bubbles.

I like the composition, but the blown highlights are distracting.

This has a renaissance feel to it. The color, the effect of the water to make it look painted, the posture of the models--they all make this seem so Michaelangelo-ish. Though I would have liked to see both their heads above water.
