Yet another attempt at humor, haven´t gotten a 6+ score so far with a shot I consider funny yet so here goes nothing. Anyway, had a bet going about this challenge with Andri and Bolti so I am at least not going down without a fight but this is sooooooo last minute, taken at about 1 am local time here in Iceland and about 4 hours before the deadline. Taken at 200mm to maximise the shallow DOF, no crop, lit with two flashes on tripods reflected with silver umbrellas. Didn´t process much, just raw conversion, curves and sharpened after resizing.

great shot, expecially on all the technicals. even though i'd like a little more context to the background (as opposed to this perfect blur), i'm sure this will finish very high.

This must have taken a few takes. This is one of those shots where I can't imagine it anywhere outside a challenge. Without the title I would think,"Huh? Why photograph this?" I like a photo to make some kind of statement, be it visual, emotional ,or informational, and this just doesn't do any of those things. I can't fault the technical aspects.

Nice title .. The shot could've been more impressive if the focus was on the front part of the splash instead of the rear of it.
