Amazing shot! Love the mercury-like quality of the water's surface and the indents from the feet. Great capture very well presented.

Cool waterstrider shot! Does indeed look like it's standing on liquid metal or silver.

What a cool shot. Could figure it out at first, I'm assuming it's a bug in wet paint??

Super clean shot. The bug disappears into his shadows just a bit but still pretty cool. The surface of the water(ice) is very metallic. Apropos title(the 'quick' and the 'silver')

Pity the upper right corner is blown as it kindof steals attention that way, I would much have preferred it toned similarly as the rest of the water in the shot. Good use of negative space anyway.
