Q. (This is completely serious - if it seems barbed or frivolous you've misunderstood the intent). What's the subject?
Edit. I felt on reflection (no pun intended) I had to come back to explain. On the face of it, the photograph was posted as a purely technical exercise on capturing a milky effect in water, and as such any comments at all on composition or artistic merit are out of place. If it wasn't so intended, and if the subject were something other than "attempt at milky water" than other comments are in order and relevant. I've been slated on other forums for inappropriately assuming that photographers were aiming at art rather than record photos or technical exercises, and I have no intention of falling into that trap here.
If more than a technical exercise was intended, thinking through the question I posed should be of great help in clarifying Alex' thoughts.
