This effect was created by boosting the saturation all the way up.

I knew this would get clobbered because of the pop art look. But I am disappointed that I am getting dinged for not having a rectangle. People seem to be so concentrated on her legs that they miss the square created by her arms.

I'll admit I missed it, though I was not far off. I saw a square created by her legs and their reflection in the water. I'll admit I didn't care for the treatment you used on it. I did realize it was an intentional effect.

I like the creative fulfillment of challenge and crazy processing.

If the colors hadn't been blown all to heck, this would have been a good representation of the challenge.

Minutely clever, but still - way, way, way too obscure; Colors are too jarring for my taste.

Great idea...too much color change in PS

You took a cool photo but the posterized processing isn't very appealing.

IT is a really good idea with a nice looking model, but the colour treatment doesn't do it for me

The square is a stretch. Not fond of the color.

Not a big fan of the over saturation but the square idea is creative.

I don't see the right angles of a rectangle, but I like the curves...

Interesting idea, but I don't think it quite works. To be nit-picky, it's really not a rectangle, it's more of a parallelogram (you don't have 90 degree angles). The wild processing is close, but the red blotches on the face makes it so that it doesn't work very well (the yellow and blue are interesting, though.) 5 for effort, but can't do more than that. Sorry...

Interesting perspective.

Creative shot. I don't like the super saturation, but the composition (very balanced) is good.

I don't know if you were deliberately going for a pop-art look here. Unfortunately it doesn't quite work for me.

Good idea however.
