Originally shot this for the Four Elements challenge, going for water and fire...in the middle of the exposure the wind blew and I was like BONUS ELEMENT - woo! I loved the abstract/painterly feel of the shot, but my team convinced me that

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/686/120/521567.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/686/120/521567.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

this one would score a bit better. :) One tenth or so of a point better, as it turns out.

In any event, I loved this shot so much I wanted to enter it anyway and didn't care as much about the score here because it didn't affect my DPL team.

Thanks much for the many helpful comments.

Nice abstract feel to it. The tones and levels here work well together.

I think you should have shot this with a faster shutter speed to really capture the flame within

The lack of detail & clarity don't work for me. Sorry. I wouldn't know there is water in there if it were not for the title.

Something in Las Vegas is my wild guess. Not sure what the black blob is, though.

Certainly difficult to make out and this will cost your points with the voters.
