advertising what?
well, the idea is interesting, howver, a few details could be considered. the top line could be a bit higher as now it seems that for advertising-like photo it's cut off a bit too low. would be better probably to see also knees for all not only two persons. second, on the right side i would like to see both legs in full not like here - one cropped from side.. and there's also the pattern of reflection in the very fore-ground which i find a bit disturbing. not really sure what's reflected there. is it just because of water motion or you've applied some filter..

anyhow, don't think that i'm just saying it's not good. i'm actually saying that the idea for your photo IMO is very good, but some details should be more considered probably. at least, you try and experiment! :)


Hi Denis.

I like it, I think your colourmanagement was spot on here. The photo is good for advertising, I'm trying to imagine what, certainly not a shoe company.

take care, Aleks

A very "advertising" feeling to the shot - well achieved. The crop is a little too low for me, seeing more of the legs, and if possible more of the reflection, would have improved the picture overall. Movement in the water adds some dynamic movement to the picture. Colours are excellent.
Thanks for sharing

Hi Denis,

superb crop and colours...well done!!!

Take care, Ivana

Love the colours here -- though I am curious to know what the ad is for :)

Very well done, reminds me of your balerine in a positive comparative value. Just appropriate reflection-space included, not more - not less. Excellent shot.


Very well taken. I like the color tones a lot. There's a nice softness on the shot. Maybe you can include the whole legs on the right. Well taken.

very cool photo here denis :)
good catch

so beautiful!
