I made great progress yesterday. Really on a roll now! Again, seeing the image on the monitor helps me judge. Although this probably looks very dark on your end, in the studio here, the colors are rich and brighter than my photograph shows. I think the hand on the rocks is a bit too large...will work on that today. My husband thinks the reflection is too small, so I showed him my reference shots and in them the reflection is indeed small. This is because her facial reflection does not sit on top of the water, but in an equal distance down in the water from the top surface of the water. In other words, if her face is three feet above the water's surface, the reflected face is six feet from her real face.
