Well composed, I like the creativity of this image. Nice defined legs and the reflection will definitely captivate viewer’s eyes.

Only my opinion but I think this image needs to have a frame that separates your black background from the remainder allowing you to bring out the vertical length / height of the legs.

Super image Jools, beautifully composed and captured. This I think would work really well as a B&W conversion. I like this a lot, straight into my favourites and short listed.

Love the basic image, the tones are superb, and the black background works for me. But I'm fairly sure I would prefer the reflection straight and clean, not rippled - I can't help thinking she's wearing very woolly tights!

That can't be comfortable!!.. talk about wearing a G string... Just kidding J, it's a super creative image, and it's great to be seeing your work again. I quite like the water ripple effect, but I also agree with Moira that the effect here does make her legs look a bit 'Nora Batty', though I don't think she ever rode a guitar. I think the effect would work better if it looked more like water and was less intense.

Hi Jools Thank you for the B&W conversion, I like it as much as V1, it some how hints at the erotic, without being obvious. Hope the job hunting goes well.

Oh go on then, have another RC Grin.
Love V1 - the saturated colours and more contrasty refelections suit the image best. In the style of Robert Palmer I think.

Hi there Jools. Another great concept here and you creativity is bursting out in this composition. However, I feel this image has some awkwardness about it. I can see where you were leading to but in this guise, the lady’s legs have been left looking quite short. Her legs may well be short but this image seems to exaggerate the form. Slimmer heels on the shoes and a slightly different angle of shot would help make the legs look longer , as well as adjusting the composition so that the joining of the real legs and the reflection is in the middle of the image.

I love how your mind works Jools and always enjoy looking at you work, ever keen to see what you have in store for us. For a budding professional photographer, your creativity punches well above your weight. What next?

This is a classic style...saw another mmember using the leg shots on Fujifilm site and ran a whole series...going to look back through files on here because I think he came across to epz...would be worth a peek if I can remember who the duck it was!

I like V1 best as the ripples give Me an impression of a current (electric guitar) surging down the legs or could it be an emotion that causes the ground to vibrate, but then I always look at things dfferent Jools, but thats my humble opinion..
