WOW the composition is perfect, her red dress and flowing hair get your attention immediately, it makes you feel more sad than heroic because you are looking through the eyes of the woman, the contrast and water effect is incredible! just maybe a bit more work on the background everything else is super good!
Thanks ;) i really like this one and i planed to make a kind of a series combined with that image (maybe a short comic). And yeah, i can agree that bg may be a bit too poor :D
The image composition is great! First the attention goes to the woman that to the man diving down to her and the to the guy on the pier. That creates some tension and leaves room for imagination.
The poles of the pier could do with some light refraction - The part outside of the water would be tilted to the left/towards the viewer. Also you wouldn't see the whole pier all the way to the shore but only inside a circle like you did with the skyline.
Last time i noticed that i am making very minimalistic images. It makes me feel that is still uncompleted. Do you have any idea how to make pictures more detalic? I have a big problem with that.
