I wanted to use metal as the main subject, yet incorporate a human element to it. It is harder than you think to think like this, (for I bet 90% of all Metal entries do not do this), and make it work. Hopefully I did here. I of course added the touch of a model and water so please stone me now.

A very ingenius image because the focus is on the water stream which is akin to metal it its glitter. 7

Pretty how the water almost looks like an extension of the metal fountain, but I wonder if that water is more of the focus than the metal.

wonderful shot! Love how you captured the water and "froze" it with your camera. The metal waterfountain was a great subject! Great job!

I really like this image...but...it seems to be more about water and getting a drink than about metal....still...really nicely done.

I like this. It makes my eye move all over the place which almost makes this image alive. The detail on the metal parts as well as the frozen arc of water go well with the woman and the sunglasses. One of my top picks so far. Nice simple boarder. Good job.

This is such a great picture. I love the movement of the water. The tone, the wind in the hair.
