So happy this did well. Thank you so much for the wonderful comments. Always appreciated.

Yes, this is not your conventional ad, but I'm not that conventional either. I prefer "environmental" and moody images, and that's what I tried to produce here.

You are so right Johanna, conventional is boring most of the time. You even managed to add elegance doing so, a very nice tour de force. Congrats!

Absolutely loved the unconventional posing and processing. Such a gorgeous image and incredibly unlucky not to ribbon.

There's much to like here. Very creative use of water and reflection. The image is a bit dark, though; I suspect to contrast with the pearls. It's also a bit unusual to see the necklaces hanging down her back rather than having her face the camera and wearing them more conventionally. I really like the way the water merges with the background, too.

Wildly entertaining... I have viewed this so many times that it has to be my favorite of this bunch.

Looks to much like you used one of those cellphone apps for photos you see on Instagram.

I am not a fan of the reflection filter but it really works here. Very dramatic. Voted earlier. 9

Nice edit, but the jewelry doesn't quite pop the way I'd want it to for an ad. It's too far back in the frame, and it feels too close to the "water".

Gorgeous lighting. Fun use of the flood thingie.

Nice. Intriguing and classy.

I like the idea. Might have been more effective if you had included her head in the reflection.

Awesome photograph. I'm no expert, but everything seems in sync and working together very well. I like what you did here.

I was loving this, until... I got to the "reflection". Then you lost me.

I love it if I crop the "water" out with my hand.

For one, it's not realistic enough and for the second, it makes her left elbow/arm very awkward.

I'd love to see this without the alteration of the "water" and with the word not covering her head... perhaps on a layer behind her head?

The idea is still worth pursuing. I find elbows being one of the most un-photogenic parts of the body and this one is no exception, (same fort the left shoulder blade)
The wording shall also play second fiddle to the image.

Beautiful concept and well executed. My only complaint would be that the pearls are a little burned out on the shoulder, but overall, I like the highlighting of the jewelry.

Beautiful interesting image. I like your tones & use of type/reflections. Lighting on the pearls is superb. Top 3 for sure! 9
