This is an amazing photo, great job! I love the use of bright, vibrant colors around not ordinary objects to create an eerie but inviting environment.
I like that the hands look like they’re containing the flow, it makes the whole image look kind of magical. To answer your question about the saturation, I noticed when I was editing that I couldn’t turn up the orange without bringing it out too much in the skin tone of the hands, so I think it was the right decision to keep it where you did.
I like the two-toned color of the dyes pluming down. The vortex rings off the figure is a great feature. The blue rolling fog along the bottom it a very unique border to the image.
The two color pigments really accentuates the rolling cloud falling over the figure. If I were editing this image, I would probably crop out some of the empty space on the right to better focus on the subject.
