Not sure what a back reflection is? Not a reflector surely. This is a fine glamour image which just needed a tiny bit more space above her head as there is on the reflection in the water. Like it but might remove the white twig.

An interesting shot,

I agree with paul! the white stick is a bit distracting, and i also feel that her skin is a slightly odd colour.. there is a fair bit of green in the image!

I have done a quick mod, removed the twig and adjusted the colour cast for you!

but a great idea and shot x

Well yes, the shot is striking because of its intense colouration and the subsequent reflection in the water. Yet, I'm afraid I'll have to go against the general opinion, save for the modified additional space above the model's head and the colour cast with which I agree. What is wrong with this shot? I think it has to do with the way the model has been positioned, it is all very unnatural! To begin with, there is a noticeable muscle tension starting with the model's hand clenching her dress. It moves straight up her arm and is reflected in the anticipation shown by her facial expression. Her flowing hair is a nice idea, certainly to illustrate the reflection, but it also introduces a counter-movement revealed by the strange neck position. I won't go into the way shadows are dealt with, especially on the left arm, nor with the other unnecessary details, the mud against her leg, for instance. In conclusion then, it all looks as if the decision to shoot was made too soon, as if the model was still awaiting the photographer's instructions. A few more shots, perhaps they do exist, might have produced something quite acceptable. At this point, and I have viewed the image over and over, I must stick with my opinion, though I do not want to discourage the photographer. He has a good eye, he must simply improve the technical side of glamour shots.
