    My interpretation of Ophelia from Shakespeare's Hamlet, based on the slightly famous painting by John Everett Millais in 1852.


    You can barely see that there's real water in there, but that didn't stop everything getting wet and things floating where they weren't supposed to!

      Much as I hate that play (and I'm an English teacher!), I do like this shot. Good job.

      Hehe, nice. :-)

      I've seen this "slightly famous" painting far more than several of the photos interpreted here. Maybe the Mona Lisa would be a good one- hardly any that are more famous.

      It also remembers me «Where the Wild Roses Grow», by Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue, see the video on youtu.be/6s8Yii4d-II

      Maybe some oil or something would have given off better reflections. Or possibly getting some ripples going with a fan. Good one in any case.
