The water is *perfect*. Had this been a poster, I would have proudly had it on my teenage bedroom wall.

Definitely deserves to be a on a book cover!

Nothing like a solid understanding of rendering tricky substances to lend credibility and depth to a concept. I can see why they asked you to write the article!

The part that just recapturing my attention is that gorgeous glowing wave in the foreground. There is a phenomenal sense of movement created in the composition, making me just want to stare for hours.
Absolutely beautiful.

Gorgeous! :D I have to check and see if I have that issue. >.< I love the composition as well as the design and concept of the environment. The composition just seems to draw your eye in a circle so you can't look away. And I love color palette.
