Well, here is my interpretation of this scene of “The Water Of Life”:

...”then hasten to fetch some of the water of life before the clock strikes twelve else the door will shut again, and you will be imprisoned"...

I don’t think “The Water Of Life” is one of the well-known Grimm fairy tales (which may turn out to be a big problem).

Only 21st place? You're slipping. There may be hope to catch you yet! Wish I could always do this poorly!

excellent macro - the reflections of the clock is a nice touch

Obviously, the reflection is the tie-in, but the timing was perfect to maintain clarity of the reflection. Great job!

Really good shot! Shame, perhaps, that the very edge of the splash is cut off but an 8 from me =]

If I wasn't so tired of seeing water drops, splashes, drips, dunks, etc... I'd probably really like this shot. I do like the color tones and it's certainly well focused and illuminated. Good luck.

Ah, yes, the expected drop shot. But a unique take on it that works well. Nearly oversharpened, but needed for the crispness on the water

Great photo... I like the symbolism of the reflection of the clock in the water.

I love this crystal clear water shot but I think the reflection of whatever it is distracts from the water flow and the ripple. Would have prefered the water to have a more simple reflection.

very creative. I love this concept. The only criticism is that the background seems overly pixelated

Great thought process for the title...
