As I stated in my comment below, the lighting, posture, and clarity are all perfect. The contrasting textures and surrounding area with the subject are so pleasant to behold that there's nothing initially flawed withing the piece that is obvious to the naked eye. There's just one small suggestion I would make, and that is to trim / crop this image a bit more on the righthand side. I presume you don't want to lose the droplet effects (who would?) but the orange hue of the light on the water is slightly distracting and draws my eye away from the rest of the surreal beauty of the image. Give it a try, perhaps, and see what YOU think. I admit, it took me a while to warm up to your work, but now that I've seen it, I can't get enough of it--you've improved a lot since when I first started watching you. Keep it up--it's unbelievably brilliant pieces like this that keep me coming back, hungry for more.

Yeah i actually think it as plastic now because milk can't 'fold' that way ;I

i think that the dress looks a bit like a plastic bag. But it's still good, it's nothing negative.

I promise I am no photographer. So I can't comment on the technique. I am an artist thou so I'll say This moves me. The images run the gauntlet between whimsical and deeply sensual. Its like you've captured the slightest hint of magic. Well Done

heheh i love your commentary xD
Your fluid works are treasures! Utilizing the best of model, photography, fluid dynamics and perhaps some very creative computer enhancements you create story and life from a simple fluid, and lovely young ladies. Absolutely phenominal!
