Very cool, but size is going to matter! You should take advantage of the pixel size maximum, this would be so much cooler if it were larger!!! (Good composition by the way!)

Welcome to DPC! My eye seems to be drawn to the fish on the wall rather than the water coming from the pipes. It is hard to tell what the subject of this photo is with the way it is composed. Also, be sure to use the full 640 pixel size available for your submission.

this picture size is just way too small. hope it was a mistake. if not you can PM me after the challenge is over and I'll explain how to make it larger if needed.

you have the right idea, but, i'm guessing that you're fairly new to dpc. if so, don't take the scores and comments to seriously. you do need to submit as large as an image as you can (if you need help with this, ask in the forums). just remember, everybody has to start someplace...

Oops! A bit on the small size. Probably already heard that a few times by now... I think the concept of your image is fine. There are a lot of water shots in this challenge, but yours is unique. Looks like this wall is in the shade causing it to be underexposed some. You can try using some fill-flash in this situation. If your camera allows adjusting the level of flash output knock it down a few stops. I've found -1.3 or -1.7EV to work well for a fill light adjustment. Good luck in the challenge.

You've captured the motion of the water without any blur. But I feel that if your image was a larger size then the subject might stand out more.

I actually rather like the composition and colors here, but the water from the pipes really doesn't serve any purpose in the photo, other than to fit it into the challenge. Maybe it would add more if you froze it as it hit the pool and splashed instead of in mid air?

Image is on the small side. Bigger would help.

it is a good example of timing, but i think it is suffering from a number of odd-composition related things... i feel that the stopped motion bits do not fill enough of the image, and seem almost insignificant as a result. the lighting is a bit dark and tinged with blue (in Elements or similar colour variations or hue / saturation adjustments might have helped). finally, the image is too small as well; use save for web to get it to the best quality at the allowable dimensions. 3.
