This was my fav. shot in the challenge. I didn't get to comment during challenge but wanted to come back and make a point of commenting on this one. I love the soft color tones and small reflections in the water drops. So pleasing to the eye and so peaceful.

11/01/2006 12:46:15 AM
Great work, Ursula. I'd have placed it even higher, but for an abstract shot 7th is pretty good :-)

One of my faves and my guess for a top spot... just really beautiful. (Kinda thought it was you too.)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/01/2006 12:12:14 AM
I am shocked.... totally shocked, as this one, was the one I thought would ribbon.....
I still love it, and have it as a "favorirte", because it is just "AWESOME".....

Why would anyone mark this as a score of "1", "2's", or a "3's", I have no idea....."Shame"..... is all that I can say.

I wish I could BUMP this one, but I have already given it a "10"..... Added this to my favorites as well.....
I think this is the "winning" shot in this challenge, and deserve the honor of the "BLUE" ribbon.....
Lovely use of "Bokeh" and also a great macro.
I especially love the waterdroplets, with the shinny blue reflections.....

Lovely! I wonder if it's Ursula...it's really beautiful either way :)
The colors of the background really do it for this image...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/29/2006 03:03:24 AM
ooooohh, so pretty and original. 10 from me! The colors are great and the 'bokeh' is so nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very Interesting photo but the blur does not appear to be caused by f-stop since the blur is not constant. Did you use a filter on the lens?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/28/2006 05:18:43 PM
This I like, very artistic and a pleasure to look at
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow, do I need to say any more!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/28/2006 09:39:02 AM
This is a fine piece of work. It reminds me alot of Dax's work, which I am totally infactuated with. Refreshing, clean, crisp, and strong charachter. I'm totally sold on this one. GL.

Yet another of those amazing macros...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/27/2006 07:16:20 AM
Well this is just lovely. Beautiful soft colors, excellent patterns, great detail on the strip in the middle and both the blurred foreground and background just really help make the shot complete wihtout being overpowering or silly. This feels like an Ursula shot all the way. Excellent work and bumping up 1 for now. I will probably be back again to top it off.

Gorgeous!!!!! I'm guessing you might be Ursula?? :) i love this shot. It's beautiful. 10 from me!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/26/2006 06:04:37 AM
Don't care if i've seen something like this before. It's so beautiful and impressive. One of my favs.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2006 10:06:12 PM
This has an intensity yet it's soft. The rich vivid turquoise almost looks "off" if that makes sense. Not bad, but just "wow how did that intense blue green appear amidst the soft aqua and peach?" It's like the droplets are almost a touch too sharp. I've come back several times before commenting. Love the title. 7

Cool photo, but.....bolero??? I don't get it, but maybe I shouldn't even look at the title? I love the colors and the focus where it matters.
