    It looks well done. I would maybe do a little more work on your knee (make it look less like a knee). So far I like it.

    I have zero experience with this level of editing, so outside of :thumbup: or :thumbdown: I can't offer any pointers...

    I just see couple spots that need cleaning up. One is just under the knee and one under the thigh, right before the darker part of the "fish skin" starts on your butt. I see couple white spots that just need to be cloned out. I don't know if anyone else sees it, but that's kind of what I was talking about re: your other post (the blue lines/dots).

    Anyway, other than that I must say I really like this one. Great idea! :)

    wow that looks really cool... if you could put her on a nice background (under the ocean maybe?) it would be a killer shot. Nice work

    As you know I've ALWAYS been one to speak out against the HEAVY PP on this board, on your photos especially.

    However, this time it WORKS. We already have a fantasy feel with the pose and the feel, so the mermaid thing just makes it work even more.

    One LITTLE thing is I don't get a feel of if you're in the water or not. I wonder if there is a way to PP those water lines in that you get when something is underwater and the light is wavy from the top?

    I would tend to agree with RMthomson's comment. Overall I think its a great idea, but to expand on his 'little thing', the original pics you posted from this setup were already surreal and carried their own sense of mystique, if you want full blown fantasy shots, a little context to the pose would add to it.
