There are just images that would have been almost impossible before Photoshop. Working with models and splashing liquids for photography would be impractical and lead to cold, damp and angry models. Trust me we don’t want that!
The cool effect in this image is the displacement maps.

See how the legs and shoes of the dancer are modified by the splashes. This makes the image work.
