Can't even start to imagine the circumstances this was shot at. I love enigmas.

Glorious, fun, beautiful, enduring, endearing. Three photos knocked my socks off in this challenge. They all get my blue.

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: Easy to get distracted by the thoroughly entertaining inflatable but there is much more going on here than just an inflatable doll in a pool. The splash around the leg is so well captured, like the foot has just entered the water, yet we see it - firmly in place - on the step. We expect a male figure but that looks like a dress, the legs are smooth and the nails are painted. We look for more clues in the reflection but our view is obscured by our pneumatic friend. We think we can see a face, but to me this has a strange plastic-like quality to it, like someone wearing a mask of a dead president reminiscent of many a Hollywood heist production. Then there is the other reflection, is that a tower of some sort? The thought changes the context from a back yard pool to something entirely more public.... intrigue upon intrigue.

Critical stuff: Far too interesting to mention anything here.

Overall: Highly engaging, I feel like I'm watching a good movie.

Well i hope no one has had too use the floater for other reasons..lol To comment on the image seriously its lacking punch i think the model in the background would have been a better choice ..really and i,m been truthful here then floater does nothing for this image sorry

So many stories with this intriguing shot.

I love the splash, her skin tone, the reflection on the water and the B&W. It's a amusing picture but I almost wish the doll wasn't in it because it distracts me from all the stuff I like best in this shot.
