Not only a great picture with amazing lighting, B&W and water, but also that's actually pretty HOT!
Here, I said it :)

This reminds me of my husband who takes the longest showers ever and just lets the water wash his day away. Love it. Of course I have to add it's probably one of the most sexy pictures I have seen but that is besides the point :)

Wonderful image and well deserved ribbon! The b&w conversion is excellent, the water looks like liquid silver, you definitely look peaceful! Huge congrats :-)

Great shot.

My guess is 29/30 of a second complete darkness with 1/30 of a second flash?

Congratulations, Jeff! Gave it a 10 during voting, so full of emotion. Wonderful!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/30/2009 04:06:20 PM
nice work here - especially in a one second exposure challenge. pushing the boundries with the use of a 1/5000th +/- second light source, and still taking the blue.

way to go. i give you many props ! :)

03/30/2009 03:24:05 PM
Just realised this is a self-portrait - all the more impressive for it, too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/30/2009 11:22:47 AM
How cool is THAT! Way to GO! This is one image where the flash makes this so wonderfully extraordinary! Congratulations and kudos for earning a well-deserved top spot!

Hairy old Marine in the shower. Oh, that's .... just terrific. Brings a whole new horror to the DPC Water Drop genre. And don't even mention the flash.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/30/2009 08:07:27 AM
Congrats!!! This is AMAZING! But what's more amazing is someone gave you a (2)??!!??

Ooooo WONDERFUL!! A big congrats to you my buddy and team mate!!! Great picture!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/30/2009 07:25:54 AM
Way to think outside of the box. Last time I checked a 1 second exposure is a 1 second exposure even if you use a flash.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/30/2009 06:06:17 AM
Congratulations!!!! Moving right on up, I see :)

Excellent image...congratulations...I made the first comment and predicted your victory - so aren't I a clever boy???
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/30/2009 05:28:26 AM
I'm guessing water moves more than that in a second, but what do I know? :-) I told Todd he's the new timfythetoo, which apparently makes you the new Irene. Congrats - and start racking them up! (Ribbons, that is.)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/30/2009 05:13:05 AM
Awesome shot, really, and congrats to the ribbon! This must be the king of all shoehorns - I'm amazed - DPC'er are usually really anal about the challenge objective and their voting principles. (Come on, such a dominant flash defeats the 1s exposure...)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/30/2009 03:49:23 AM
This is such a great image. Was it taken in low light with a strobe to stop the motion in the water?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/30/2009 03:01:10 AM
Congratulations. This is a super shot. Love the way the water drops just hang to your face. Great idea for a one second exposure.
