  1. Call me cynical but in this day and age, One cannot help but wonder whether it is all computer tricks or was she really in a stunning wet set? only the people involved know the answer to that I guess. Personally, I have my doubts.

  2. no, the water isn’t real. but looks pretty good! the “tell” is there are no dynamic ripples in the water around the models’ limbs in the water. an arm or leg in water makes for complex small interacting wave patterns. Another tell, the water looks a bit static jello-like in certain shots, rising up on a thigh. Here’s a untweaked shot of a foot in real water with dynamic wavelets, very hard to get this right in Photoshop!

      • I want to believe, but look at picture #2, the models face is shown as reflecting in the water, but her head is clearly placed back too far on the table for that perspective. the water was composited in, and reflection was added post-shoot.
