The Fort Worth Water Gardens. Some may recognize this as one of the locations used in the science fiction movie "Logan's Run".

Anticipated critiques:
-Too busy

Post-challenge notes:
Finished about where I hoped for. I knew I hadn't gotten a lot of "wow" out of this and the human interest wasn't terribly strong either. I'll have to work the water gardens some more for that killer shot I know is there.

I really thought you captured a great shot, here. Upon first glance, I was impressed and surprised with the larger and more noticeable texture in the concrete - but I wonder if some mistook it for graininess? Also, I guess the score might have suffered from those not familiar with what a recognizable attraction destination these water gardens are for the city of Fort Worth.

I'm guessing a more staged shot with a model might have had more of the "WOW" you are looking for. But still, I thought this was good work.

I think this image could be made even stronger by cropping the right hand edge much closer to the girl.
