I find this photo appealing because of the shallow depth of field. It enables the subject to be the focal point of the photograph. I also chose this photo because of the reflection of light on the water, it adds shine and sparkle emphasising the shallow depth of field. It almost creates a third layer to the image and if you look closely you can almost touch the surface of the water.
I was pleased with the position of the model and the hair. The contrast of the hair against the water helps the viewer to focus on the subjects facial expression, which I particularly like in this photo. Even though she’s floating in the water, she still looks natural and composed.
