On color pics. I do think that this one benefits from the use of color. Perhaps the blue is too chromatic. Just to be picky.

I gave it a 7 (my second-highest score) but then I chickened out on commenting appropriately, for which I apologise.

I kept hearing Cream's Tales of Brave Ulysses whenever I looked at the image and I flashed back to the 1960's, where I turned out to be still as bewildered now as I was then.

And you see a girl's brown body dancing through the turquoise,
And her footprints make you follow where the sky loves the sea,
And when your fingers find her, she drowns you in her body,
Carving deep blue ripples in the tissues of your mind.


Brrrrr! Thanks for the time travel.

One of my 10s during the challenge. Very creative, and good to look at.

This is truly creepy. And because of that it's very cool. But creepy.

Very clever. I like that you cannot see the rest of her. And the water is mystical.

Fabulous concept, with just enough of the legs to send home the idea. Well done. Terrific lighting too, I'm wondering if you were just lucky with the sun, or you brought your own portable one :-)

Clever with great editing! The contrasting legs with the lovely blues works very well.

The water looks perfect for the "transformation" aspect, but the water is also turning part of her legs purple, which makes her look dead. If you color corrected her legs to make them a more "normal" skin tone, this would have worked better.

If she had a tail, this would be awesome..
