I was really hoping for a different shot. But when I arrived, the fountains were not yet running. So I had to settle for this hum0drum fountain, and try to make something nice from it. So I found a decent angle, used a long exposure, and zoomed in tight. We;ll see how this ends up doing, I expect a 5.5 finish.

I sure have been on a streak of getting things wrong. This image, which I predicted wouldn't do well, is in the 6 range. While the images I thought would do well are all sub 5 or low 5s.

I'm happy to see this image doing well :)


Holy cow! A 4th place finish! This score rose so much in the last 36 hours of voting. At that time, it was in the 6.15 range, and just seemed to keep bumping up as the late voters tallied their scores.

I'm so grateful!
