I knew Id be taking a risk with this so soon after the Apple challenge but I thought that if I got a top 10 finish without water in that challenge maybe Id stand a chance of another top ten with water in this challenge ;-)
The score started off well, then went waaaay down (as usual ;-). Luckily it picked up again.
Im really thrilled with my score and the comments. Thanks!!

And a BIG, BIG thanks for the ribbon!!

Did you set up a controlled background or is it digitally edited in?
It looks very real but I figured I'd ask anyway!

Nice shot!

In the post-announcement thread, I joked that maybe I should change my name to °Water_Droplet°, and someone replied, "And give Irene a ribbon?" Fortunately, I didn't have to change my name....

Congrats, again.

This is just super sharp and crisp. Excellent job getting it to jump off the screen without oversharpening.
