nice idea, but the water spray seems to be more of a distraction than anything else. there's no context that visually explains it, and, as is, leaves me thinking the image would be better off without it.

Fantastic, although I am not usually inclined to likeing center compositions, I think this however works really well.

Wow. You actually stopped motion! Hooray. ;^) I say that because many of the animals, water, etc...shots aren't using high enough shutter speed to truly stop motion. Now that you've gotten past that you are going to have to get past the "it's too centered" crowd, and possibly the "looks like it's overexposed" group as well. ;^) Sorry, couldn't resist. It's tough trying to please everyone when it comes to getting high scores from voters. As long as you're happy that's what counts the most. I like your entry. It's not "perfect", but it's pretty darn good. Good luck in the challenge. ;^)

Oh yes you did! Did you PP to make the white whiter? It looks just a bit overdone, especially in the tail region which looks blown out. A nice idea though.
