A warm figure floats as chilly rain falls. Art photography of a nude woman often balances the aesthetic with the sensual. This is image is consistent with that. Bubbles and splashes swirl around her nude body, partially obscuring her. Hot blues glow amidst ghostly cool tones.

Intense emotion is clear in her expression. Her face is lifted and head tipped back into the water. Drops of water sit on her face. Her chest bristles with the cold. Inky hair drifts directionlessly beneath her.

Darker blues dominate the lower portion of the image. Lighter colors near the top accentuate the texture of falling rain and imply depth. An outstretched arm emphasizes a sense of perspective.

Action in art photography tells a story of nude woman in motion. What has just happened, is currently transpiring, and will happen next are at play. The most interesting stories not only tell us what is happening but prompt us to ask what is happening, how, and why.

This composition relies heavily on crisp detail paired with a degree of abstraction. Compare this relatively tranquil image with a more energetic abstract nude artwork.
