Your focus on the water is excellent! Each droplet is so wonderfully clear. I especially like the ones that are shooting out on their own to the left, captured in mid-air.
Your lighting is quite good, highlighting the water.
Composition has room for improvement. The knob in the back is distracting. It takes up a lot of the image, but isn't clear enough to really add anything to the composition. A possible solution might be to put something in front of it...fabric, paper, I don't know what for sure. Maybe just cropped out. I'd like to see the glare on the sink ledge toned down, or just covered along with the knob in the back.

Overall you did a good job of freezing the motion, and met the challenge well.

Nice focus. Interesting to convey motion without blur. Well done. Everybody else seems to think that streaky shots of water convey motion better. Not so.

The tap should be in focus, it looks too much like a bin.

i like this idea, i thought about doing it myself but did not. l like how you have captured the water droplets and how you placed them on the right side of the imaged instead of the middle. even though the background color disturbs me, i still find the photo appealing! good job

Excellent focus! I love this shot, but for some reason I don't get a sense of motion when I look at it.

Wow that's neat. I assume from a shower head. Never would have thought of that. Gotta go try it now :) Good job on sharpness and depth of field. Jacko. 8

Great picture. Awesome focus. a few specs of dust or jpeg errors in the background, but otherwise awesome shot. I like the placement of the water looks great, well done.

great still capture of moving water..the object in the background is a little distracting..could you have cropped it out? Still a great shot.
