Great which is very nicely executed. One of my favorites from the challenge.

Being an Advanced Editing challenge some cloning here and there, to get rid of the scratches on the glass and background, and some noise removal on the background. Would've done this one even better.

Great colors and use of light and shadow. I'm interested to see how you got this one. bumping

Nice stop action capture and lovely golden color. Bumping up.

wow. am wondering how you did this. good work. the water challenge is difficult cause you need to have an original shot. this is original. the lighting could have been a little better but very nice nevertheless

This is a keeper. I enjoy this image thoroughly. I do have 2 suggestions. I'm not sure about the color balance/exposure. It feels TOO yellow to the point of distraction. Also, there is a major lens flare in the middle of the beautiful drops (near the top of the glass). That is very distracting to me.

Great shot.

how in the world did you do this?
03/27/2006 02:16:30 PM
Ok, how'd you do that?? It looks like it might be upside down in water but the drops confuse me.

Clever & interesting. The quality can be worked on and improved, but I quite like it as it is.
