Photographers Notes
Someone spotted my photo of the fountain at Seattle Center in the Emotion challenge and suggested I should have saved it for this challenge. Well, I can always reshoot.

Still, the voters here, you know who you are, often dont reward near duplicates so if Im going to reshoot, Im going to go for a different look. Here it is.

It was a twenty-minute drive to Seattle Center, a twenty-minute shoot; a twenty-minute drive home, and twenty minutes in editing. Feels too easy. Maybe Im missing something. Good camera; good software; on-challenge subject; innovative take on the challenge; good thumbnail invites opening Im not sure what Im missing.

In a few hours the votes will start rolling in. Please, dear voters, dont disappoint me!

That fountain was my very first thought when I saw the challenge description - pity we don't live in WA anymore.
Love the photo - I don't normally go for that HDR look, but I just adore the way it hides the Space Needle behind the water.

congrats on the ribbon, I almost got arrested taking photos at that fountain, parents don't like their half naked kids jumping thru the water to be photographed. Funny, I was shooting for the rain challenge, since we didn't have any real rain at the time.

This is a really cool fountain (reminds me of a colander). Nicely composed. Top 3

Wonderful perspective of the International Fountain at the Seattle Center. Excellent tones and contrast, especially in the water drops.

I love the amount of water in this picture. And despite it it's possible to see the tower in the background. Good composition too. Great stuff!
