Like a dream!

Hi Francois, I reallly like this picture. First of all, it has a very nice composition with the diagonal movement, from the turbulent bubbles, down into "le grand bleu". The bubbles also gives a very interesting light on her body and I like the fact that she is 'coming out of' the bubbles that are concealing her bottom and thighs in a very sophisticated manner. The colours and sharpness are fine as well! There are two things that I would suggest to try and see if it becomes even better: 1) If you could get rid of the debris in the undisturbed water by cloning ot blurring selectively, I think the picture would get a more professional look. 2) You could also try to increase the contrast somewhat and sharpen the image a bit with unsharp mask. It would make her 'pop' in the picture but maybe that isn't making the picture any better - try it.

Finally, I must say that this is really a dreamlike view!

Regards, Jens.
