Thanks to everyone who left a comment! And, a special thanks to all who favorited this shot during the challenge - I think it's my first time getting favorites during voting. I know splashing water shots are considered a bit passe or cliche, but it was my first time getting a successful set of shots like that.

Thanks again,
Ara
