Set this up in my back yard in a hurry. As you can see the shadow has hit the bottom of the image.
Would love to clone out some dust spots as I took this at f32 to slow the shutter speed, so the dust becomes apparent.
Also I didn't have time to set up the tripod, so this is shot at 1/8 sec Hand Held. I had to sharpen quite a lot to get rid of the fuzziness.

For those of you who don't know how this is done. I bought some clear hose, and put a stripe of white perspex into it to make it stiff. It wasn't enough so there is a piece of wire behind that which is hidden by the white & goes up into the tap. Then water flows up the hose in the inside and back down on the outside. I would need to try this again with a thinner hose, as this one can been seen on the right.

A very good effort. Imagine if you had decided to do it earlier with the required time and the use of a tripod. Well, there are many more ideas where this one came from. Keep up the good work.

My pick for a blue! The only imperfection that caused a 9 instead of 10 was the blown reflection off the faucet. There is also something unreal about the water coming out that I could not put my finger on, probably there is a tube that is feeding the faucet with the water and the amount of water is not sufficient to cover it.
Also, there is a halo around the faucet from oversharpening. All this and still a 9 - that's how strong effect this had on me. Good luck!

As a gadget it is fun, as a picture it doesn't quite cut it.
