I know, it's not a macro. I made a mistake, I was thinking "nature abstract" not "macro abstract". Oh well.

Thank you for the high votes!

This kind of "stealing" is a real compliment :)

great mistake, I love this!!

WOW!!! Only Ursula could make a "mistake" and turn out a photo so beautiful it still makes an honorable mention 5th place! This is so amazingly stunning. I think if I saw more photos like this abstract might even become one of my favorite types of photography :)

I've seen a lot of these abstract water shots, but this is in the top 3 if not the best I've seen. Nice work.

Well I guess this isn't macro but somehow that didn't cross my mind when I saw this. Something about that incredible color and light that must have blinded me. :P

I don't think it's a macro nor is it abstract enough but I like it nevertheless.

An incredible shot - the water seems truly alive. Great colours and the slow shutter speed adds a real air of mystery.

Excellent title for this abstract. And, I love how the lower, streaky kind of water contrasts with the swirly kind above. Very interesting effect. 8

beautiful! It took me a second to realize what it was, the title helped me identify it, which kinda killed it for me since we arent suposed to know what it is. But that said this is such an awsome picture i cant give it less than a 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2006 08:29:05 AM
Oh WOW!!! This is amazing! My favourite so far, I doubt I'll find anything else as wonderful as this. 10, and going in my favourites.
