Thanks for all the positive comments.
But strangely even after DPC Validation there are some sceptical folk out there.

As Farfel53 explains;
The water goes up through the clear plastic pipe that the brass tap is attached to, then back down the outside of same pipe rendering the pipe invisible.

It was part of a stand demonstrating waterproof roofing products at a show in Devon UK. I managed to get a shot excluding the rest of the stand set up. The box the water fell on was covered with the roofing product being demonstrated and that concealed the water tank and pump.

The photo has been cropped, shrunk and very slightly sharpened to compensate for what's lost in shrinkage.
That is all.
Keeping it real...
Nicola

The water goes up through the clear plastic pipe the spigot stands on, then back down along the outside of same pipe. Cool idea. And good shot.

I see this shot has been validated and I figured it was legit when I first saw it. I still want to know how it was done. :)

Neat shot if you posed this in the air with something that looks like water, shame on you if this was cropped. But I just don't see how this relates to the challenge.

I question how you were able to do this shot under the basic editing rules... However, if that's not really water, and just some plastic or glass tube shaped to look like water, stuck on the end of a loose plumbing part, then that's a REALLY cool, unique and interesting idea. It totally looks like water. So assuming you aren't getting DQ'd for this, then it's a pretty cool photograph.

How did you do that?
Can you tell me??

Now, THAT is amazing. Some people's brilliance in creativity just make me feel so boring. Way to GO!
