Like never before I prepared for both 'Romance' and 'Blue2' challenges and in the last moment I decided to enter the first one. Big mistake! But, what's done is done. Anyway I just want some onest opinions on the photo I made for Blue2.

Thanks, George.

Oh, and here is the link.

I like it without the wire.

I like it quite a lot!
I would have rated it higher!

Now I feel bad for not choosing Blue :(

Very nice potential top ten blue entry - hard to say though - hindsight is 20/20. Here's hopin' for a strong finish in the much less crowded Romance challenge. :)

You know, that blue shot is pretty cool. It's an interesting take on water drops, different from a lot we see here.

Very original take on the concept...I would have favored a more powerful blue, but that's just me. Nice shot.

I'm keeping the idea maybe for a future challenge. ARGH..... >:(

Why do you think you made a mistake?
Just because your choice right now isn't scoring well?

I suppose it's a question about what's important to you. If you're into taking good pictures, maybe this reminder might help:

Just because it does well with DPC voters, doesn't mean it's a good photograph. Just because it doesn't do well with DPC voters, doesn't mean that it's not a good photograph.

So...what's important to you?

To make good photos and have fun with it. But I have some goals i want to achieve here on DPC and I think that entering the pic in the Blue challenge would've helped more. :)

I have another version here.

It would have been a unique entry for the challenge, and probably scored very well. I certainly like it. You might get a few low votes from some people if they thought the idea was borrowed, though.

Chema was more like an inspiration.

I forgot to submit my adjusted version of my picture. I feel stupid.

No doubt. As I said, I like the photo, but some people might not appreciate that such a unique idea wasn't yours.

Interesting, what makes the original Chema (imo) is the space around the thread, as if the drops of water were picked up by the needle.

Shannon, thanks so much for the link! I've never heard of Chema Madoz before, and I had such a blast going through his photos now. Wow, what a creative mind!

Don't follow my mistake and take shots for both challenges(in basic editing I mean).
