I was up late browsing dp when I decided I would try this one. I had the idea of black water in the tub with me emerging to depict the after life in a very dark tone. I couldn't find dark enough food coloring and ended up with a gross green color. Post took care of it nicely though, not my usual style of work but I wanted to try something out of my box.

Is this the creature from the black lagoon?

Major boost of contrast? If it weren't for your hand slightly submerged, i wouldn't have guessed that you were in water. i like your idea, maybe next time you could set up some lighting, and set your white balance accordingly. Nice concept!
