Nice water droplet.
01/25/2006 12:34:00 AM
Unique textures in a fairly common subject. Well done.
01/24/2006 03:18:42 PM
Cool, amazing how the drop picks up the swirl.
01/24/2006 02:26:03 PM
It's a fantastic shot, great composition and general effect
01/23/2006 05:23:37 PM
This looks vaguely familiar. Oh well. I like the effect. Nice timing and cool patterns on the water.
01/23/2006 06:06:51 AM
If I'm not mistaken, another very similar shot was already a ribbon winner?!! That's still a better photo.
01/22/2006 10:14:11 PM
Seen this before, but beautiful to see again. Amazing studio shot.
01/20/2006 10:32:26 PM
Would have like this better in color, just my opinion, but still a great shot.
01/20/2006 04:46:13 PM
Love this. The one thing that would make it better would be a symmetrical presentation. It is just off center and I think that detracts a bit. Just my opinion though :) Well done. -8-

A different take on a typical subject. I know the intent is to get the spiral to show in the drop but I actually like the effect it had on the water surface itself. Lots of crazy lines to keep your eyes going.
01/19/2006 10:35:55 PM
Oh yeah! I like everything about this one. 10
01/19/2006 06:22:05 PM
I never tire looking at effects like this
01/19/2006 02:40:11 AM
Very interesting effect.
01/18/2006 08:27:18 PM
I like the swirly pattern. I think desaturating to total B&W would have been a good idea, since I find some of the colours in the water a little distracting,.

10 from me...good luck!
01/17/2006 07:38:38 PM
great photo but i think this theme has been played out to frequently
01/17/2006 07:16:33 PM
didn't we see a very similar shot win a ribbon not too recently?

The drop almost looks like a fingerprint. Very detailed. I love it.
01/17/2006 03:38:27 AM
Very cool waterdrop shot. I really like the pattern thing going on.
01/16/2006 10:32:54 PM
You took an old standard and made it original. Good one.
01/16/2006 10:27:46 PM
One of these days I'm going to try one of these shots. Nicely done.
01/16/2006 04:09:07 PM
yet another splash... I find the image too dark, the pattern is too distracting and the outline in the background is too fuzzy like a bad photoshop work.

what I like is how you captured the splash, the curves and the floating drop of water.

I think this image would have been much better if you'd had a single color under your splash not that pattern.

I told her, it didnt matter if the seat was up or down, I would still hit the target...

Nice. The way the shapes reflect in the water as well as the drop 7
