An image that jolts the senses with its undulating shapes and then the pi about here and there. Super cool! Congratulations on your top 5 finish.

wow - that was close, i was at 6.78xxx before i went to bed last night which would have got me a ribbon =|

ah well - you live you learn - next time i think i might make it brighter and risk people complaining about the blown highlights (which was the consideration in not making this any lighter) ;P

Thanks to those 24 of you who gave this a 10, your pay packets are on their way ;)

Not a bad start - only 6 contest entries so far...

More creative than most.

See ya on the front page! This is a winner, and the only 10 I gave in this challenge. I love the desat, it gives the water a mercury look. Well done.

The image is a bit dark, but the creativity really makes it worth a 9

Now, that is really cool. How did you get the images in focus? Yep, there's nothing not to like about this image.
05/03/2007 11:36:27 PM
good capture - focused pi is subtle

Boy, hope you don't get counted off because the Pi symbol is too easy to miss (it is clear in the two larger bubbles on the left). This is a great shot, and the subtle Pi symbols tie it in nicely.
05/03/2007 03:24:25 PM
Ok, at first glance I didn't see the Pi symbl inthe water drops.
05/03/2007 02:01:37 PM
I don't know how you did it, but if thats in camera thats awesome...... wish it wasn't quite as dark though

Great quick shot.
05/02/2007 05:20:25 PM
This is a nice idea, but the lighting isn't strong enough. It feels far too dark. I do like the subtle way the pi symbols are found in different areas of the water though.

Wow, this must have taken a while to get right. I hate to be critical of something that obviously took effort but I find it a little dark, having said that, the image is fantastically sharp.

Nice shot. The movement is great and the light reflecting off of the water is amazing! Very creative.
