My wife in her Ed Hardy rubber boots jumping into a puddle. She was a real good sport about jumping into the puddle until I was satisfied with the shot.

Post Challenge: A new PB! Many thanks to everyone for the great comments and votes. Oh, and I forgot to mention that my wife hurt her foot a couple of days before this shot (the one being held slightly up). This was the first day she could put a shoe on it. So she was doing one legged hops into the puddle for me!
