In know way did I ever think it would do this well. When I showed Yo Spiff, he thought yes should score maybe high 6's, and I kind of figured that as well, so to score in the sevens is unbelievable really!! I was shocked to see it that high on the first day of voting, actually it was in the 8's for sometime...and to think I nearly entered something else!!

All of a sudden my front page has a colour shot on it, haha, it's had black and white shots through out my whole time here, maybe I'm being converted over to colour!


My 2nd red, THANKS GUYS to all those who made it possible, you know who you are!

Now about the photo, it wasn't raining, I held the hose in one hand and my 300mm in the other, man that was hard, shot about 6 photos picked the best and wallla.

Anita, no marks of 1, 2 or 3 for you. Hmmm .... I don't like this. Smells too much like ... roses.
Good that you got past 7, bad that you did not get past 8 with any of your "other" pics.
Keep rolling!

A stand out in this mess of off centeredness. I really love the sharpness of the droplets on the underside of the daisy, and the blur of the bokeh/rain. Really nice.
