This original art nude photograph depicts four figures standing nearly shoulder to shoulder, thigh deep in water. Three are similar in their stance and height. One nude is slightly taller and posed differently. Seemingly simple, the arrangement is more than just four naked girls. There is an array of details and distinctions amongst the torsos, arms, and hair.

This composition is neither modest nor overpoweringly sensual.

A single horizontal line of vegetation divides the composition nearly through the center. This divider is comprised of greenery and it’s shadow in dark blue. Dark green trees dot the horizon in the distance. The upper portion of the image is cloudless sky. The lower half is patterned water. The ripples reflects the blue sky, mixed with the peachy warm tones of the four bodies.
