WOW, Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote and comment!

I really am surprised this got a ribbon. There were A LOT of really nice ones in this challenge, I thought for sure I wasn't even going to get an HM.

Not much to say about the shot. It's shot in the stream that runs near where I live. I was really fortunate since there's been quite a bit of rain recently and for the weeks prior, the stream was flowing too fast for any kind of shooting. It luckily died down enough this particular week for me to safely take my gear there, but the day after, it rained heavily and it's now flowing fast again.

I did go out and buy this bottle especially for the challenge. It's one of those huge 1.75 litre bottles and it's sitting in my freezer waiting to be cracked open for a celebratory drink :)

Cheers!

***************************

Just thought i'd throw in some outtakes.
First is a test shot, second is with the ND filter. The wider angle looks nice but the bottle gets lost in it so I went with one that was zoomed in tighter.

This is a beautiful image. The softness of the mist contrasting with the shiny, very definitive texture of the rocks. It does have a certain 'magical' tome to it.

The mist looks very soft, and it goes well wrapped around the bottle. my only critique is in the bottle itself. Right on top of the ABSOLUT text, there's either a weird reflection, or odd lighting or maybe fingerprints or something on it that makes it a bit distracting.

Neat! The misty smooth water and the soft light make this shot.
Not too crazy about the glistening rock in the foreground though - it's competing for attention with the bottle itself I think.

This is excellent. The soft curves of the bottle complement the calmness that the water adds. The addition of the rocks really keeps the viewer inside the photo and not floating away so to speak (though I think the bottom rock might restrict the viewer just a bit).

Love the exposure and setup, seems to have a bit too much of a pink tint though.

Smooth but yet crystal clear, almost makes me want to drink some of the awful stuff, nice shot.
